I tried configure --without-termcap and --with-terminfo to no avail.
So, do I need a backport of /etc/termicap to get xemacs to run on
As you have noticed termcap support is broken. I suggest that you for
tty support install the development package for ncurses. (I don't know
what it is called but there ought to be one in Ubuntu) XEmacs
configure will detect and use that instead of termcap.
