Maybe, maybe not. On RH 6.2, libtermcap.so.2 is in the "libtermcap"

AFAIK, all of the functions which libtermcap provides are also
provided by either libncurses or (where it exists) libtinfo. Anecdotal
evidence suggests that you can work around this problem by creating a
symlink called libtermcap.so.2 which points to one of these libraries.
