            Bug ID: 261272
           Summary: distextract fails to init with vt100/serial
           Product: Base System
           Version: CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: thj@FreeBSD.org

With the Jan 6th iso images the installer fails during distextract. 
I have traced this to bsdlibdialog failing when it cannot init color pairs. I
can reproduce this on a FreeBSD host with:

$ export TERM=vt100
$ env DISTRIBUTIONS="dafa" /usr/libexec/bsdinstall/distextract

distextract: Cannot init libbsdialog

Setting the terminal type to xterm allows the install to function.
