You've gotten further than me with dt. I have a Mac II with a RasterOps 264
video card, in B/W mode of course. running 'dt' merely freezes my machine.
Hitting the interrupt programmer's switch causes my machine to panic about
50 times, then hang again. No core dump to figure out what happens. Gnu
'screen' works fine for me, though. (available from my ftp server)

Yes, the mrg pakage is a lot more current than the binaries for ps et al in
the 1.0 release. I believe that you need to build new ones from -current
