yes/no:  Solaris tic can read/use the ncurses terminfo.src (it'll complain
about the extensions, but I don't recall that preventing any tic from
compiling the source).  There were some issues with the extended binary
format used by ncurses 5.0 versus ncurses 4.2, but that's long ago.

Of course there's the entry for "xterm", which is aliased to "xterm-new".
Specific terminal emulators may not match that, e.g., Sun's xterm won't
(which will leave odd splotches on your screen ;-).

The terminfo source in xterm's tarball is smaller and for getting
the terminfo up to date is just as good (or bad).
