Yes, with the caveat that they will face problems connecting to other
systems from within the chroot, since xterm-xxxx does not exist in
non-Debian systems. So if the chroot is never used with a Debian
kernel, overriding the xterm terminfo is certainly preferable.

I don't know, but those are not really relevant here since the FreeBSD
chroots have their own ncurses implementation, and whatever I may do is
not going to change them.
