  tetris does not run when TERM=xterm
  start x windows, in an xterm window with TERM=xterm, start tetris, and the
  program says:

callisto:bstark$ tetris
aborting: cannot do random cursor positioning via tgoto()
callisto:bstark$ echo $TERM

  This occurs on NetBSD 1.4 with XFree86 3.3.4.

  To get around the problem, type export TERM=xterm-r5, then run tetris.
