I don't immediately see (understand) how

* Implemented the ability to pass selected environment variables between the
  client and the server. See "AcceptEnv" in sshd_config(5) and "SendEnv" in 
  ssh_config(5) for details

resolves, because when I hit the problem (accessing Linux from DFBSD) I
tried cutting and pasting termcap entries with no success (could be my
own incompetence).

I'll try Matt's csh environmental function... but if there is more to it
could someone please post details so I can try next time I have a DFBSD
up? (me also has problems with screen session TERM/TERMCAP issues, all

BTW - this is the reason I'm not using BSD on my workstation yet.
