You brought up the terminfo/termcap issue, which has puzzled me for
quite a while.  A while back I was under the impression that termcap was
slowly being phased out in favor of the terminfo directory, and frankly
I've never even tried compiling with termcap.  Although, now I see that
I have a 705k termcap in /etc, I'll try it out...

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?

Well, the comings and goings of linux can be confusing
at times.  You said that --with-terminfo was dead, and I
thought that you meant you weren't supporting it anymore,
but I guess you meant that it's the default.
