The termcap entries for vt100 and vt220 (and probably others)
include neither :bc=: nor :bs:, thereby coredumping
/usr/games/snake and telling other, more careful, programs that
the terminals cannot backspace.
Read /usr/src/share/termcap/termcap.src, or go run
/usr/games/snake with TERM set to vt100 or vt220 and figure out
why it coredumps.
Add :bs:, since the terminals can backspace with \b.
Alternatively, if the capabilities are so obsolete that NetBSD
wishes to drop support for them, fix snake to assume \b.
