Description

As part of the ON build, usr/src/cmd/mdb/tools/scripts/tigen is run to generate kmdb_terminfo.c for each arch. This script runs put(1) over a specific list of terminal types, some of which (e.g. 'dtterm') are not in SUNWcs.

It should be using the compiled terminfo database in the proto root rather than depending on pkg:/system/data/terminfo.

As terminfo is built directly in proto, it looks like a better solution (if we want a default target separate from install) is to compile terminfo entries in the kmdb tree. Implemented in OI.

Not so keen on that. Why not have cmd/mdb depend on cmd/terminfo, and set TERMINFO to $(ROOT)/../terminfo?
