That's "with".

Partly fixed, radical rewrite pending.

Fixed and made default, option removed.

Some people may still need it.  I remember using it myself.

Annihilated :-)

Option --with-terminfo is dead.  Everything else is default except
--with-tm-x-support, and you can now see the default values in the output
of "configure --help".

That's very interesting.  You seem to be under impression that termcap is
not being phased out.  Your original understanding was correct, but what
was the reason to doubt it?

Again, it's a very important question.  I'm trying to make the
documentation as clear as possible for the users of year 2002, not for the
hackers of year 1995.  Your answer can really help.
