Well, I fixed the error for Cygwin. It turned out that the
/usr/lib/terminfo directory was a symbolic link to the
./share/terminfo directory. I removed the symbolic
link, moved the share terminfo directory to /usr/lib and
created a symbolic link from share to ../lib for the
terminfo directory. No more error message. That's
a weird one. It might be because I am using the X-win32
server from StarNET. Programs compiled outside of
Cygwin do not recognize the Cygwin symbolic links. The
xfree binary should work OK.
