this has been the cause of some pain, maybe bootstrap should build tnftp
without curses support. users could of course still build and install
the full-featured net/tnftp after bootstrapping, if they wish.
it doesn't seem reasonable to *require* curses for the sole purpose of
the progress bar (which is definitely not a requirement of pkgsrc's
"download the distfile" action).
even without curses, the progress meter could be made to work by
rewriting the line, unless there is something I am missing here.
