Ah, but it does. I assume they are the same graphics as in nethack-qt. The
snag is that they are not installed correctly because of the way that nethack
has been split up. Install nethack-x11 from the package system, rebuild the
x11tiles file in the work directory, replace the x11tiles file in nethackdir,
in your X resources and away you go.
