Well, actually the terminfo database is about 1M unpacked, or about 1/3
of the total (due to the large number of small files, and large number
of directories, usage is highly file-system dependent). On the next
release of ncurses, I plan to split the libs/exe's and the terminfo
database into two separate packages. I haven't decided what to do about
the -src.tar.bz2 package for the terminfo-database part.
The goal here is to make it easier to update the database without
forcing everybody to download the whole ncurses package...
Don't hold yer breath tho -- this is a round tuit problem. (It'll
happen when I get 'round tuit).
