	After update to xterm-238, cursor keys, PgUp, PgDn and suchlike 
	did not work as expected: denending on the key in question, there
	was no response at all or skipping whole words on cursor left/right.
	See Debian bug 511138 http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=511138
	for another instance of this.
	According to the xterm changelog, this is a problen on 64bit
	machines only.
	Thomas Dickey has since released xterm-239 which fixed the problem
	for me (and on Debian).
	The patch below updates the port x11/xterm to version 239
