Well, I had a fight with that problem a few years ago.
Maybe it is time now to remove support of termcap? As you say all
modern systems ought to have terminfo or ncurses.
I don't see a reason to remove it, it probably still works on systems
that need it. The effort to check whether there are any systems that
need it seems unreasonable.
We could have configure warn, though.
The workaround I have used when this issue pops up is to install
ncurses. We prefer that to termcap when it is available.
I'm pretty sure you must be talking of Cygwin. On Gentoo, Debian, and
Mac OS X, here's the guts of termcap.h:
I doubt Ubuntu is any different.
