Bug#1997: ncurses linux terminal definition for kbs

PACKAGE: ncurses
VERSION: 1.9.8a-1

An attempt to use the kbs capability in a linux VC failed.
My BS key produces ^?, not ^H, and the compiled-in linux terminal
definition seems to have kbs set ti ^H (infocmp linux doesn't
work, so I can't check, but ctrl-h acts like the BS key should).

IMO, the backspace key should be recognized as kbs, and the DEL key
as kdch1.
