 I have started to look at this.  When it starts up, the screen looks OK
 apart from any highlighted items are white on white (title, current
 selection).  Using the left arrow key will get me to a sub-menu plus box
 borders drawn in an odd place.  No other keys appear to do anything.

 This tends to imply that there is an application bug, as it will not work
 with either NetBSD curses nor ncurses.  I will look at the debugging output
 from our curses library and see what I can spot.
 Do other version of centerim (apart from the one in pkgsrc) work?
   My other computer also runs NetBSD    /        Sailing at Newbiggin        /
