The general rule I'd like to follow (tho Emacs doesn't follow it yet) is
that a function that is not specific to one particular kind of display
(tty, X11, w32, you name it) should always be defined.

So if/when you bump into such a function that's only defined when used
(or compiled) with a GUI, please report it as a bug.
