They do work on the BSDs, it's just that those virtual mahines default to a C locale.  And then the Alt+arrow keys aren't bound, because I didn't want to make the first column of keystrokes in the help text wider.  But it seems I will have to relent, because those keys not working in a C locale... okay, maybe.  But not working in an ISO8859-x locale either, that's pushing it too far.

Same thing on OpenBSD.  (I've changed the gettext() calls to no-ops to get it to compile.)

Typing <Alt+Up> or <Alt+Down> or <Alt+Left> or <Alt+Right> on FreeBSD or NetBSD results in the message "Unbound key" on the status bar.

(Don't know about OpenBSD -- I can't compile it any more, it can't find the gettext functions.)
