Probably because xterm is under ports and termcap under src and it would
not be easy to track changes in ports under src.

The only practical way to keep termcap up to date would be for the
committer updating the port to also check and update termcap under src.
The problem with this is that most ports committers aren't authorized
to make commits under src.
