Well, you might need to check the ascs setting for one.  Anyway, I'd
recommend that you unininstall anything termcap related, as it is
practically deprecated and has many annoying limitations.  To check
xterms and screens terminfo files, run

% infocmp -l xterm
% infocmp -l screen

You'll get the terminfo definitions dumped to stdout, or, if not, they
aren't installed properly.

% ldd /usr/bin/xterm

it will output all files that xterm dynamical link to.

Well, list /lib and see if you have a in it, then you'll
be using wchar_t stuff...

% ls /lib/

Well, it depends.  If you are using UTF-8, you should pass the -U option
to screen when you start it up.
