    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).
