HEADS UP: terminfo imported into -current

Hi List

I've now imported my terminfo implementation into -current and removed termcap. terminfo provides a backwards compatable termcap interface (minus the NetBSD extensions).

Everything should still work just as before, with the below exceptions:

* Any 3rd party programs using the termcap API NetBSD extensions
  will have to be reworked.

* termcap -> terminfo translation is not provided.
  As such $TERMCAP is ignored and tset -s no longer reports it.
  If you maintain your own definitions you will now have to manage
  them your personal terminfo databases.
  This is described in tic(1).
