Hi again, and thanks for your help. I spent some time trying this and
got no further. Pulling my hair out at this stage.
First of all I created a terminfo source file on the Slackware machine
with rxvt-unicode-256color installed:
infocmp -I rxvt-unicode-256color > rxvt-unicode-256color.terminfo
I copied this terminfo source file to my home directory in NetBSD and
ran tic on it:
tic -s rxvt-unicode-256color.terminfo.
This created a .terminfo directory in HOME, and a subdirectory r with a
single file in r called rxvt-unicode-256color. No cdb extension in other
words. But running tic on the source file seems to succeed: it reports
that it added 1 entry to the database.
When I connect to NetBSD using rxvt-unicode-256color (whose TERM
variable is rxvt-unicode-256color) I still get an error running top to
the effect that there is no termcap entry for rxvt-unicode-256color.
