[CDBUG-talk] FW: alternative for 'screen'?

After installing FreeBSD 7 under VMWare this morning I see to my dismay
there is no port available for the GNU screen program (evidently there
is/was a security flaw). What do you guys recommend as an alternative?

p.s.  I prefer to avoid compiling the program. The main reason I installed
FreeBSD is that most (evidently not all) of what I need is available as a
package under FreeBSD - and once again I spent 2-3 hours last week
attempting to compile a program from source code under Linux which installed
in 2 seconds under FreeBSD. But no screen?!
