Weird.  Even after blowing away /usr/release/root/* and /usr/obj/*,
cvsup'ping, and doing a 'make installer_release' as root, I still get
half of the things installed as my regular uid 1000 user.

Maybe it's because I su'ed to root instead of logging in as root? 
Can't think of anything else, I'll try it.

Solved: ncurses lets you set the env var 'ESCDELAY' to a value in
milliseconds.  I've tested it and it works nicely, I'll commit a patch
to the pfi scripts to set it up, shortly.
