According to Thomas Dickey, at least the `pk' capability in the
iris-ansi termcap entry (and thus also in entries which reference
it w/out overriding `pk') is incorrect.
It currently is: "pk=\EP101;%d.y%s\E\", but according to Thomas,
it should be "pk=\EP101;%d.y%s\E\\".
See also PR port-sgimips/17619, which documents the issue for the
cut-down termcap entry used by the sgimips installer.

source file at ftp://invisible-island.net/ncurses/termcap.src.gz
It may well be that the `pk' capability is the only incorrect one,
but I don't have the time to check right now.
