hmm - the "-o" option isn't much used, but I did a quick check and see
that's working for me (Debian).

Is this using the FreeBSD port, or self-compiled?

In either case, it helps to know the version (major, minor, patchdate)
which you can get using "tic -V".

The "-v" (verbose) option won't show where it puts the files, but "tic -D"
shows the directory it'll use for output.  tic will only create the last
directory-leaf (terminfo) and its immediate children, so if 


exists and is writable, then this should be created:
