ClosedPublic

Details

Summary

Switch to the non hashed db database
Add a site-terminfo in patch so ports can easily install their own
db without messing with devel/ncurses in a place which works with both
base ncurses and devel/ncurses

I will deal with the said port and remove @terminfo along with this change

Why switch to non-hashed DB? Isn't hashed faster?

Is there supposed to be a patch file here?

no the hashed db isn't faster, the hashed allow the ports tree to simply add its own terminal definition without the requirement of a script.
It allows base and ports to coexist better reusing common locations
