That's a bashism. You need to do "set TERM=pc3; export TERM" or "set
TERM=vt220; export TERM" or "eval `tset -s vt220`". The default shell,
/bin/sh, is really "ash" in disguise. It does have command recall
("set -o vi" or "set -o emacs"). /bin/csh and /bin/ksh are in the
tree, and available to use in single-user mode. To try on of those,
type out the full path when requested.

To use bash, you'll have to first install it. Check out the
documentation on the NetBSD package system, at

Shouldn't that be rc_configured=YES?
