I just finished fighting with this for a couple of days. The problem is that
unless you have Streams installed, you don't HAVE ptem.h. While termio.h
defines the ioctl call TIOCGWINSZ, the data structure needed as a parameter
to that call is defined elsewhere. Nasty. The problem didn't exist under
1.0.6, because TIOCGWINSZ wasn't defined in termio.h.

The simplest solution I found was to add a line in virtterm.c, right after

#ifdef USG 



I guess to be correct about it, you really should add the necessary 
edit instruction to your localize script. 
Anyway, this seems to work just fine.
