On my system /usr/include/term.h is a link to ncurses/term.h, but I
see that this link wasn't installed by any Debian package.  See also
my bug report #1331 `terminfo(3ncurses) says <term.h>, but

I don't know what the problem with tigetstr is.  I'm using the old
a.out compiler and libc, and ncurses-{runtime,developer} 1.9.4-0.
