I was able to compile vis + netbsd-curses! :) I described the problems here:

Syntax highlighting etc. everything works. However, when I use ':e *',
I have to call 'reset' after closing the editor. vis some_file && :wq
etc. work correctly. Only ':e *' causes problems (so far).

Does anyone have an idea of how this problem can be solved?
