The cursor-type is applicable only if running in X, where you get a
software cursor. On the plain terminal, you get the hardware cursor
only. And, starting I think with 21, the 'visible' (block) rather than
'normal' (underline) cursor is used, so it would appear that the only
way to change it is to change term.c as I noted and recompile.

(the blink-cursor-mode which was suggested is also applicable only to
the software cursor).
