I'm running -current (kernel: Dec. 3, binaries: Dec. 12), on a Mac II,
Toby video, and it seems to run just fine.  All I need now is a three-
button mouse, and to figure out where to patch so I get my arrow keys

One note of caution: If you have your system set up to do a 'stty rows 34',
you'll want to wrap that in an if/then/else because the xterms are 24 rows.
In csh, for example (tailor to your liking):

  if ($TERM == "xterm") then
    stty rows 24
    stty rows 34

And it definitely helps if you're familiar with X; documentation is not
