At least on NetBSD-current vis-0.5 seems working fine (it is packaged
in pkgsrc as vis-editor). I have also tried to skim for possible
pkgsrc patches on dependencies but I think that there is not anything
relevant for curses(3).

I have also tried to the `:!' and `:e *' and they seem working (
`:!', e.g. `:!dmesg', unlike at least NetBSD vi(1) (and more
generally probably nvi) it seems to not wait for a key to be pressed so
the dmesg message is then "cleared"; `:e *' opens vis-editor-menu with
the list of the current files).

Can you please elaborate further what happens?

Thank you!
