Yes, that is an option. But what I wanted to know is what is wrong
with my installation that just "emacs" without the option "-nw" does
not work.

YDL is X11 aware. When you also installed the developers packages (C header files), then Emacs' configure script found them, together with the X libraries. From this a GNU Emacs binary was compiled that is an X client. This kind is also the default type of GNU Emacs in Linux and other UNIX distributions – only Mac OS X installs a non-windowing GNU Emacs.

You can compile your own non-windowing GNU Emacs when you invoke configure with '--without-x' – or you set CPPFLAGS or make configure options like --x-includes=DIR or --x-libraries=DIR to point where no X11 related material can be found. Than you'll get a binary that might only use libncurses and won't be able to use a windowing environment ...
