Installation of devel/ncurses on Solaris fails with

** Building terminfo database, please wait...
Running tic to install /usr/pkgsrc/20101105/share/lib/terminfo ...

        You may see messages regarding extended capabilities, e.g., AX.
        These are extended terminal capabilities which are compiled
                tic -x
        If you have ncurses 4.2 applications, you should read the INSTALL
        document, and install the terminfo without the -x option.

? tic could not build /usr/pkgsrc/20101105/share/lib/terminfo

Comparing misc/terminfo.src found in the build directory to a version generated 
on NetBSD shows, that the entries

screen|VT 100/ANSI X3.64 virtual terminal
screen-bce|VT 100/ANSI X3.64 virtual terminal with bce
screen.rxvt|screen in rxvt
screen-256color-bce-s|GNU Screen with 256 colors, BCE, and status line

are missing, everything else is identical.

Only after sifting through ncurses' scripts, I found that these entries are 
removed by pkgsrc's Makefile. Please revise the changes made on 2011-02-28.

BTW: This is another package that breaks during install, not build, thus 
leaving a half installed and unregistered package.
