subdirectory thereof.  Naturally, you cannot install any of the
precompiled packages there, but have to do that yourself, so this
includes compiling termcap yourself as well.  You do this by setting
--prefix on the configure command line.

Don't forget to include the resulting bin/ directory into your $PATH,
the resulting lib/ directory into your $LD_LIBRARY_PATH and into your
-L options in LDFLAGS, and include/ into the -I options in CFLAGS (and
