Description of problem:
The <Home> and <End> keys in Less should take you to the beginning and
end of a document respectively just as the <g> and <G> keys do. 
Rather, <Home> and <End> seem to be non-functioning.

It looks like the Less man page and the Less web site both claim that
<Home> and <End> should work as described above.

I believe that in FC1 these keys did work correctly but now that FC2
has taken its place there's no way for me to check for certain.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Less in a console
2.Attempt to go to the start or end of a document using <Home> or
<End> key

Actual Results:  <Home> and <End> are non-functioning

Expected Results:  <Home> and <End> should function the same as the
<g> and <G> keys and navigate to the beginning and end of the document.

I should add that this only happens in Gnome-terminal and xterm, not a
full screnn console.

looks like a regression in ncurses-5.4. A downgrade to ncurses-5.3 
fixes this.
