        You may see messages regarding unknown capabilities, e.g., AX.
        These are extended terminal capabilities which can be compiled
                tic -x
        Read the INSTALL document before doing this - it can cause
        problems for older ncurses applications.

"/tmp/2082", line 3489, terminal 'screen.teraterm': resolution of use=screen failed
? tic could not build /usr/pkg/share/lib/terminfo
*** Error code 1

I've put this at serious/high because ncurses is required by a lot
of pkgs.
cd devel/ncurses; make install
