[lfs-support] Solid Red Block Cursor in TTY (Terminfo)

I'm trying to make my cursor a solid red block, like this: 

echo -e "\e[?16;0;200c"

I've changed my terminfo variables cnorm, cvvis and rs1 like this:

I've compiled the terminfo with: 

tic <terminfo-file>, which puts the compiled terminfo in ~/.terminfo

My problem is that this doesn't seem to be read, cause I manually have
to do echo -e "\e[?16;0;200c" to get that red block cursor. 

The reason I'm trying to change this in the TTY is because after
launching emacs, the cursor disappears completely and I have to reset
the terminal.

When I reset the terminal, I get a normal underscore blinking cursor
again and I have to issue the command again. 

Any pointers as to what I can try?
