            Bug ID: 210858
           Summary: tput setaf and tput setab not setting any color
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-CURRENT
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin

On latest build from 11-CURRENT (2016-07-04 00:09:54) i can't get terminal
colors working using tput, yet ANSI codes are supported just fine. Didn't check
previous versions but someone on IRC reported reproduction even.. on 9.3 -
which I can't confirm (using CURRENT only on my buildhosts)

Example and explanation of problem:
"tput setaf" and "tput setab" aren't setting any color/attribute, always
returning 1 (except on init, reset subcommands).

After quick truss - it looked like die after reading /usr/share/misc/termcap.db
file (regenerated before, with cap_mkdb based on original termcap from fbsd

Another interesting fact is that "tput co" returns "190" yet should 256 for

I tried specifying other terminal types through both $TERM and tput -T option.
It changes only report about color amount..
