Running Grass on Debian

Hello, Markus and Grass users!

        This is only a note for Grass under Debian Linux.

        I'm using Debian Linux 1.3 R3 and Markus' latest Grass binaries. I
found a minor problem with termcap libraries and Grass because Debian
does not use these libraries and obviously Grass reffuses to work
without them.

        But there's a simple solution from Debian distribution itself: one must
install termcap-compat*.deb package and everything just run fine!

        I hope this can help users that are running Grass on Debian Linux.
