That could get kinda messy. It might be easier, for now, to simply
put a check in your .cshrc to set the TERMCAP to something specific
based on the value of TERM. e.g.
if ( "$TERM" = "fubar" ) then
setenv TERMCAP "thetermcapforterm"
I have no problem adding entries to /etc/termcap if they are
reasonably standard (not just individually customized entries but
things that correspond to a particular terminal emulator like xterm).
