I managed to get ncurses-4.2 working after deleting the old ncurses
1.9.9g. It was only used by teTeX and dialog, so I killed them both just
to be sure. How many program do use ncurses btw?

We as stated above, I used your advice, thanks!.
The only problem with teTeX-0.4p8 is that I'd had to us `pkg_add -f ' to
install it for it looked for ncurses-1.9.9g. Could this become a problem?
Also, I ran the ncurses test programs and found them working ok except the
cursor keys... Since other programs like `vi' and `less' also have
problems with the cursorkeys, I'm wondering if there may be an
installation fault in NetBSD/arm32. Can anybody shed a light on this?
