In either case, it helps to know the version (major, minor, patchdate)

I should have asked - perhaps you're running FreeBSD/current.
I have a machine with 11.2 release (the port's somewhat older).

Ports have same versions on all BSDs. I run 11.2, ncurses port patched to the latest version: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=230142

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

The port uses the hashed-database feature, so the last leaf is created
as a file (and of course has no immediate children).

In either case, it wouldn't make directories for this part:


This project 'kitty' needs to create and install its own termcaps file, because they run their own terminal and need to use their own termcaps through TERMINFO variable.

So how can I make tip it create this file?
