apparently programs should be using terminfo not termcap.. 
ie from the ncurses package.. 
some have used ncurses (creating a link for the libtermcap so file..)
a better approach than a link would be to update the makefile to use ncurses, 
and only use termcap if ncurses is not found..

Last time I built gnucap was on Fedora 7; now on Fedora 9, it appears
the termcap library
is missing. Apparently termcap is not a part of Fedora 9; the Fedora
website lists termcap 1.1
as "dead.package", with last log entry "-retire termcap".

The build successfully completes, but attempting to execute gnucap produces:

$ gnucap
gnucap: error while loading shared libraries: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory

Is this a known problem? Is there a workaround (other than simply building
and installing Fedora 8 libtermcap)?
