Yes, at least, remove the #define from your host.def (my host.def just has
the 'HasPerl' line in it at the moment). There is a different way of turning
on the wscons console code, it's described in README.NetBSD, however it didn't
work at all when I tried it.

But it also has defines for PCVT_SUPPORT and PCCONS_SUPPORT, and I think
you're overriding this.
