Comment:

 I used a modified instruction and created a symlink /usr/lib/terminfo that
 points to /usr/share/terminfo. The following files are then overwritten.

 {{{
 rml at rmlinux: ~/build > cat Logs/BLFS/xterm*/overwrite_files.log

 I really don't see any harm in the xterm package overwriting xterm config
 files from the Ncurses packages.

 Thoughts from others are encouraged.
