How to use rxvt-unicode + OpenSSH

I'm experiencing an issue related to the terminal capabilities and OpenSSH. I've 
installed x11/rxvt-unicode port on my client and server. When I login to my server 
from urxvt (running on client), I get messages related to terminal capabilities:

abbe [~] chateau% ssh notebook
abbe [~] monte-cristo% man ls
WARNING: terminal is not fully functional
abbe [~] monte-cristo% echo $TERM
abbe [~] monte-cristo% tic `pkg_info -xL rxvt-unicode |fgrep rxvt-unicode.terminfo`

I've also tried exporting TERMINFO=$HOME/.terminfo.db to the server's 
environment, but no success. I'm running zsh on both ends, compiled with ncurses 
from ports instead of base.

abbe [~] monte-cristo% ldd `which zsh`
/usr/local/bin/zsh: => /usr/local/lib/ (0x8006cd000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x8007ff000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x8009f8000) => /lib/ (0x800b25000) => /lib/ (0x800c3f000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x800e5c000)

And the surprising thing is, if I start zsh in urxvt, running on my server, it 
works fine. No such warning printing at all.

Any ideas, what is causing this ?
