I haven't looked yet myself so I could be totally wrong here, but the
"old" debian termcap file and the one from termcap-2.0.8 are totally out
of date. With the ncurses package a "master" termcap/info file is included
from which the terminfo entries are generated, and from which a matching
termcap file can be created. You probably want to include that file as
the termcap file.
