New Revision: 203638

  Merge r202115 from head:
    Our standard "xterm" termcap entry supports colour, so this tip is redundant.
    As it happens, "xterm-color" has just been an alias for "xterm" since
    src/share/termcap/termcap.src 1.131 in September 2002.

-If you are running xterm, the default TERM variable will be 'xterm'.  If you
-set this environment variable to 'xterm-color' instead, a lot of programs will

-	setenv TERM xterm-color
-in csh-derived shells.
 If you do not want to get beeps in X11 (X Windows), you can turn them off with
 	xset b off
