/etc/termcap is obsolete in Red Hat. Currently Red hat uses version 9.12.0
but according to homepage of Eric S. Raymond the latest available version
is 10.2.7.


And therefore it is real pain in the ass to log in to Red Hat from some
machine and terminal with termcap/terminfo entries like rxvt or dtterm. And
it would be very nice to include an entry called "xterm-debian", too:
