This seems to have changed some time. I have noticed after updating recently that I have to
do the stty erase ^? otherwise I get del characters in vi, this didn't happen prior to the
update.  My usual update method is to build into a separate install dir, tar the results
over / and then run postinstall so maybe I have missed something.
