Hi Thomas,
Thanx for your thought.  I'll try with 4.2, since that seems to be the
oldest version available on the gnu ftp site. I did allow the make
install to build and install the terminfo database, but I elected to
place that in a seperately (prefixed) location.  I ensure I'm not using
any $HOME/.terminfo by setting the TERMINFO environment variable to
/usr/share/lib/terminfo (on the HP). It was important to us to use the
OS supplied terminfo.

I've visited the FAQ. Thanx for that too. Any direction on the best news
group to ask others for similar experiences?
