Do you have something like "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=3D/usr/pkg/lib" in your
shell startup file (e.g., ~/.profile)? That's a bad idea in general. I
doubt it's the source of this problem but I'd advise against it.

Oh my, munching the whole BSD license for a trivial one-liner. I think
I'll make it an alias here.

Alright. It doesn't look like there's really a file missing. I guess, either
guess your termcap database is damaged or TERM is set to a terminal type
you don't have a entry for at all. What's the output of the following?

$ env|grep TERM

Do you have ncurses installed? If yes what's the output of this:

$ TERMCAP=3D/usr/share/misc/termcap captoinfo
