Description

Our terminfo database lives at /usr/share/lib/terminfo, where lots of things know to look for it. Younger bodies of software, written in an emphatically Linux-centric era of history, may only look in /usr/share/terminfo for these files. We should add a symlink there for compatibility.

Tested using dtrace and infocmp to reveal terminal description information.

Tested symlink to /usr/share/terminfo and verified that it is correct. Further verified contents of database location and permissions.
