That -src package is basically just a wrapper around terminfo.src from
ncurses-5.7 (as of patch level 20091114).  So, the ultimate upstream
source is actually ncurses.  But I split it out specifically so that we
could do faster updates of terminfo (rebuilding all of ncurses simply to
change two characters in /usr/share/terminfo/[63|c]/cygwin is rather silly).

So, send me patches against terminfo.src from that -src tarball, and
once we've got it figured out, I'll push it upstream to the ncurses
