} Yesterday's changes to terminfo.c were no good for SunOS-4.1 and
} SunOS-5.5.

The problem is that Src/system.h globally includes <termcap.h> when it
exists, but that clashes with <curses.h> and/or <term.h> where they're
wanted in terminfo.c.

<termcap.h> or an equivalent is needed in init.c for tgetstr() and in
zle_refresh.c for tgoto().  Src/prototypes.h has the necessary proto-
types to avoid this, but they're #ifndef HAVE_TERMCAP_H.

Since configure won't find terminfo once it's found termcap, I believe
a minimal workaround is the patch that follows.  Much more extensive
fiddling is going to be necessary if we really want to use both termcap
and terminfo simultaneously.

Please let me know if this gets your build working again.
