Strykar:

Currently the ncurses package is split into libncurses and libncurses-dev.
There is no option to get the binaries, or progs as the ncurses package calls them for the target:
tic, infocmp, captoinfo, tset, reset, clear, tput, toe, tabs

May I please suggest adding another ifdef called Package/libncurses-bin or Package/libncurses-progs to the Makefile that builds and packages just the binaries from the ncurses package?

The use case for tput, reset and clear seem wide ranging.
My use case for this is adding terminfo for my terminal instead of spawning a different one just for openwrt devices:
infocmp xterm-kitty | ssh owrtdevice tic -x -o ~/.terminfo /dev/stdin

This currently fails ion x86_64 with:
$ infocmp -a xterm-kitty | ssh apu tic -x -o ~/.terminfo /dev/stdin

This would also be useful for getting alacritty's terminfo installed as per: https://github.com/alacritty/alacritty/blob/master/INSTALL.md#terminfo

My workaround is currently as follows from an ubuntu machine:

infocmp alacritty | tic -x -o ~/.terminfo /dev/stdin
scp ~/.terminfo/a/alacritty  root@owrtdevice:/usr/share/terminfo/a/
