I installed ncurses4 and readline2, as suggested by Niraj, but I get the
same error as Armani -- I try to start codasrv on a Red Hat 8.0 system,
and it segfaults.

Don't worry, Jan, I blame Red Hat, not you :-).

Known bug, or something new?

Next step is to download the code and compile, which I haven't done
