Here's a new snapshot.

It should now implement all documented ncurses terminfo capabilities.

(it's missing a lot of functionality, e.g., the ability to compare
extended entries, which I implemented in ncurses more than 10 years ago ;-)

Yes, the userland tool infocmp I provide doesn't compare entries yet, it just prints them to the screen. It's purpose to date is to ensure that a tic compiled entry matches a ncurses tic compiled entry.

However, the terminfo library and and compiler have all the functionality required to be standards compliant.
