is there copyright problem with termcap? After the installation of FreeBSD
on my Ultra-10 I'd just copied definition from Solaris and normal console
(not serial) works just fine. If Sun didn't copyright/patent their termcap
could it just be incorporated into FreeBSD? By the way, file id appeared
to be the same on Solaris and FreeBSD, but content is different.

Kind regards,
