As I suspected.  On my fresh 90-RC1 install, I get xterm for all the console terminals.  You'll have to check where your /etc/ttys picks up the old entries.  Both stable and releng have the updated version, as far as I can tell.

If your /etc/ttys has
ttyv0   "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         xterm   on  secure
and so on, you'll need to check whether a login script resets the TERM environment variable.
