Simple checkbook software for Slackware?

I need something very simple, just to balance my checkbook, savings account, and credit card.

I was about to install gnuCash, but it looked like it had a lot of dependencies. I just wanted something simple.

Another option, if you don't mind using non-free software, is Moneydance. It's non-free, but cheap, and it seems to be good.

Is there a curses based checkbook program?

I forgot to mention that I preferred one that was non-GUI.

Something like Quicken for DOS (circa 1990)

A few months ago I looked for a ncurses accounting package myself, but I didn't find any. Finally I went with Moneydance. It requires Java 2, and has a GUI, though.

You might take a look a banal, but it's obviously not being developed any more, and it might not be what you are looking for, at all. But it's text based.
