Actually, resize works on quite a few ANSI terminals, just not on
everything.  If memory serves, it moves the cursor to some
ridiculous coordinates that are way down and to the right, and 
then asks for a cursor position report to find where the bottom
right of the screen *really* is.  So what you really need is 
support in the console driver for a cursor position report.

On the other hand, the netbsd maintainers may feel that they have 
more important things to do than add this feature...
