This strcmp() is in library function tgetent. Try to unset
TGETENT_ACCEPTS_NULL, recompile and try again. It is possible that your OS
actually needs preallocated buffer.

One more possibilty is, that screen creates too long termcap entry. IIRC I've
seen something similar. How long is new termcap entry? I think, common limit
is 1024.
