I meant to say, "in any case".

If anyone's inclined to hack on this package, the thing to do would be
to update and simplify the package, letting the configure script (and
buildlink) work out reasonable per-platform defaults for the choice of
screen library. [The original motivation for letting the user choose
at build-time is long past, as NetBSD curses has had color support
since before NetBSD 1.5.]
