Some one already sent me a patch for *BSD support but apparently i broke
it again. I should probably set up a kvm/qemu vm as test environment.
Try removing the #include <pty.h> in rote.c as this is not needed on
*BSD. Then rerun configure without --disable-pty, hope it works.

It's the way it is until someone proposes a better way / writes a patch :)
I haven't looked at the screen sources yet, if i find the time i will
investigate in a select based solution.
