Comment (by alexander at linuxfromscratch.org):

 I cannot comment if (4) is good. My concern was that the luit-compatible
 terminfo settings for line drawing characters are in ncurses, but not in
 xterm.

 Result:

 terminfo settings in both xterm and ncurses are compatible with OLD xterm
 and luit from X11R6.8.2, so I don't see immediate problems with "make
 install-ti"

 But something is very broken in the new luit. E.g.,

  * the pty race is fixed in 6.9.0 but not 7.0.0
  * the standard smacs and rmacs sequences are not recognized in luit mode.
 Testcase: in "xterm -lc", echo -e '\x1b(0qqq\x1b(B'. "qqq" is the wrong
 result. A horizontal line is the correct result.
