For me, on a NetBSD-3.0_BETA machine, nvi-m17n crashes right out of the
box. With no .exrc, on startup it clears the screed and then I get:

     No redraw edit option specified.
     Modifications not recoverable if the session fails.
     /tmp/vi.07345b: new file: line 1
     Press any key to continue: Memory fault (core dumped)

I seem to recall having a similar problem a couple of years ago on a
NetBSD-2 machine (again i386), which is why I'm running some apparently
older version of nvi-m17n right now, gotten from who knows where.

Anybody know what's up with this? Does this package work for anyone?
