Exactly right, and I've been remiss in not posting the solution to all these
problems, provided to me by NEdit's maintainer Erik Anderson: simply upgrade
to lesstifg 0.85.3-1. Worked like a charm.

The source is available.  However, the license isn't GPL afaik, but one from
the Fermi Labs, and I must confess I haven't read the fine print. But I've
become attached to using it, and did my first semester's worth of c++ homework
with it, so I'll stick with it for now.
