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.
IIRC Matts is correct, you must have ncurses install on Ubuntu to get
XEmacs working. I don't remember *which* exact packages and my notes
are at work. But here is what I have installed:
% dpkg --get-selections | fgrep curses
