#3001: xterm instruction forcing TERMINFO=/usr/lib/terminfo
 Reporter:  omero   |       Owner:  [EMAIL PROTECTED]                   
     Type:  task    |      Status:  new                           
 Priority:  normal  |   Milestone:  6.5                           
Component:  BOOK    |     Version:  SVN                           
 Severity:  normal  |    Keywords:  xterm terminfo ncurses        
 In current blfs-svn book, the xterm chapter will force configuration
 with TERMINFO=/usr/lib/terminfo, whit the following rationale:

 TERMINFO=/usr/lib/terminfo: This ensures that the xterm terminfo
 file is installed to the system terminfo database
 when the installation prefix is not /usr.

 However, Ncurses-5.7 (lfs-6.5, chapter 6) gets configured to store
 terminfo database in /usr/share/terminfo (`tic' command uses
 that path by default).
