DF's termcap needs to be changed. But racing all possible terminal

a nifty feature like setting TERMCAP environment so that the termcap
entry corresponding to TERM is overridden. Sad thing tho that ssh
doesn't pass along TERMCAP, but only TERM.

I believe that the latest release of openssh provides a way that you can specify other environment variables whose values will be passed across an ssh connection. I think you have to configure both ends of the connection to allow each specific environment variable. But I have not installed the new version yet, so I have not had a chance to see how the new feature works.
