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 ;-)

My infocmp implementation now compares entries to each other in the same way as ncurses. A few comparsion and output options have not been implemented as I don't support termcap -> terminfo translation and I've not entirely sure some output options are needed.

The tic(1) implementation is a lot faster than before and is 3 times quicker than ncurses tic :)

(perhaps - see above).

Still 3x quicker ;)
Maybe this is because I just write one database whereas ncurses spits out one per terminal?
