It's not clear to me whether you mean --without-x builds or --with-x
builds started with -nw (or both), but in either case:
In a with-x build:
emacs -Q -nw
C-h f tool-bar-mode
tool-bar-mode is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `tool-bar.el'.
C-h f set-scroll-bar-mode
set-scroll-bar-mode is a compiled Lisp function in `scroll-bar.el'.
(tool-bar-mode 1) ; no error
(set-scroll-bar-mode 'left) ; no error
In a without-x build, neither tool-bar-mode nor set-scroll-bar-mode is
Thus, I see no inconsistency here and don't understand your request.
