No, I don't believe CSWmlterm to be the culprit.  It references and  
uses .../share/terminfo but not .../lib/terminfo.

On the other hand, scrutinizing CSWmlterm has turned up a very minor  
glitch in its space file; thanks for causing me to find that.

But I think, in making .../lib/terminfo into a directory on Gérard  
Henry's system, the cause lies elsewhere.

	: chapman; grep lib.terminfo CSWmlterm/p*
	: chapman; grep lib.terminfo CSWmlterm/i*/*
	CSWmlterm/install/space:share/lib/terminfo 8 1

I might guess that I had made a similar confusion between the paths  
previously, but when cleaned up, I typo'd the space file.  The typo  
isn't for .../lib/terminfo, but for a non-existent .../share/lib/ 
terminfo.  It should not break any installations, but I will clean it  
up for a future release.
