Hi Chet,

first of all, thanks for pushing my changes into devel.

I am a bit unhappy with the wording "TGETENT_BROKEN" and "It's not clear
how HPUX is so broken here." Initially, I shared the same view, but when
looking into the POSIX definition of tgetent(2) and (tgetflag) by the Open
Group [1], it says:

        The tgetent routine loads the entry for name.  It returns:

           1  on success,

           0  if there is no such entry (or that it is a generic  type,  having
              too little information for curses applications to run), and

           -1 if the terminfo database could not be found.

This is the traditional return value, dating back to the original BSD
implementation. If HPUX does it differently, it's broken.

This is a pretty good argument for my beloved BSD. Accepted. Comment revoked.

Thank you for enlightening me. Looking forward for a new release to drop my local patch.
