Hi,

the problem still exists in the 9.0.3 package provided by EnterpriseDB:

psql (9.0.3)
Type "help" for help.

Cannot read termcap database;
using dumb terminal settings.
Aborted

I've done some analysis:
- libtermcap is provided in the 9.0.3 package
- What is missing is the "termcap database"

I worked around the problem by copying the /etc/termcap file from a
RedHat system.
There should be a better way.

Regards,
 Martin
