At line 247 of os.h there is this conditional:

/* Alexandre Oliva: SVR4 style ptys don't work with osf */
#ifdef _osf_
# undef HAVE_SVR4_PTYS

As _osf_ is defined by the standard Tru64 C compiler, this undefines HAVE_SVR4_PTYS and breaks screen on Tru64 (5.1B).

Unfortunately I can't see an easy way to distinguish Tru64 via a standard macro, so maybe it should be done by autoconf?
