Uh... unalias xterm.


As far as lynx goes, btw, I rebuilt it and found that only text
that's supposed to be reverse video is unreabable with "Lynx Version
2.8.3rel.1 (23 Apr 2000)" (what I got from a CVS update in
pkgsrc/www/lynx). I haven't tried pkgsrc/www/lynx-current. Should I?

I actually think lynx's remaining problems will be solved with a
libslang update, which I haven't done yet since the tarball's sum
doesn't match that in pkgsrc. Anyway, if my libslang has a problem
with the new xterm definition, shouldn't that show up with mutt too?
(It doesn't.)
