If it fails to build then there is a bug. I was able to build 3.5.13 -libs and -base packages without arts, so it does work. The problem is with the autotools packages, which 1. look for arts even when they don't need it and 2. are not respecting --without-arts when I try to pass it. I didn't bother filing a bug because it's autotools-related and there's an easy workaround (compile with arts present, then kick it back off).
