clearing the output of less

After exiting less or man in other distributions, the screen appears as
before, i. e, I see "$ less foo". It is not so with [my ] LFS: the
visible part of the "foo" document remains visible in the screen.
What controls this behaviour? Some environment variable?

(I'm trying this logged in a remote gentoo box, via ssh, and then
chrooting into LFS. Could this be the problem?)
