The terminfo entry for xterm-debian can be copied directly to a Solaris
machine without modification.

Copy /etc/terminfo/x/xterm-debian on the linux box to
/usr/share/lib/terminfo/x/xterm-debian on the Solaris box or have your
sysadmin do it if you do not have root on that machine. Also, you can cut
and paste the termcap entry in /etc/termcap for xterm-debian to
/etc/termcap on the Solaris box.
