The cursor keys on the consoles in freebsd CURRENT (no X11 virtual
consoles, the FreeBSD consoles!) do not work for me.

I use tcsh as the main shell.
As set by default in /etc/ttys, the console's terminal type is xterm.
Switching to=20

setenv TERM cons25

solves the problem, but the menus in ports via make config look ugly
and more ugly, but they are unusable with the setting "TERM=3Dxterm".

What is wrong here? Why are the cursor keys not working in the
console/ports menu as expected when using tcsh/csh as default shell?

Plese CC me.

Regards,
Oliver
