CSWterminfo-rxvt-unicode is built together with rxvt-unicode. This makes
sense because the terminfo sources for it come in the urxvt source
I'm not too thrilled to pick up maintainership on common libraries. I'll
upload it but don't wait for me if later work is needed on ncurses.

I finally got this to build.

It gets compile options by running: $PERL -MExtUtils::Embed -e ccopts
That seems to lack -I/opt/csw/lib/perl/5.10.1/CORE but also used
-xarch=sparc which is for suncc and not g++. Is the lack of the include
perhaps an issue with our perl package?

This is a different split: they separated the curses part from the
terminfo part.
