Can't find TERM=linux w/Piper's local

I am having problems with Andy Piper's local/ package.  Only a few terminal
types are recognized.  vt200 is, vt100 isn't. versaterm is. linux, xterm

I have CYGWIN32=tty

I have binary mounts for /usr/bin, /usr/lib, /usr/etc, /usr/local, ...
I have a binary mount for /

I have installed the local using both Winzip and Cygwin32 tar.

I have the latest (19.4) dll.

My test is to run 'tset' to see what terminals can be found. I usually get
"unknown terminal type linux", etc.  But it can see
/usr/local/share/terminfo because *a few* terminals work and when I change
the name of terminfo, none of those can be found.

This *looks* like a binary/text thing, but (I think) I have binary mounts.

Any ideas?  I've been working on this on and off for an embarrasingly long
