Such crashes mean that your terminal capabilities entry uses terminfo
features (I think it's %p1 that causes the crash), but the Emacs
configure script somehow decides you don't have terminfo installed.

One frequent cause for such problems is when you have an old version
of ncurses installed on a GNU/Linux system.

For more details, see the entry in etc/PROBLEMS named "Emacs aborts
inside the function `tparam1'".
