making an 'Eterm' terminfo entry

I recently put together a new debian box based on unstable. When I
connect to my local server running debian stable using ssh in Eterm,
the server complains when I run ncurses based applications such as
emacs that there is no 'Eterm' TERM type. I hacked a solution quickly
enough by creating a symlink /etc/terminfo/E/Eterm which pointed to

This problem is new, and probably pops up with the latest version of
Eterm (I have another box based on unstable that I haven't upgraded
for at least a month that works fine) which exports a TERM that stable
doesn't recognize.

This seems like a resonable solution. Is there a better one? It
doesn't smell like a bug, but should I report it against Eterm?
