I was just rebuilding less for cygwin 1.5.0 (turns out that I have a 6G

rebuilding less, inadvertently built less with ncurses (I normally build
it with termcap to avoid the ncurses dependency). I probably wouldn't
even have noticed that less defaulted to this if not for the fact that
it started reporting that the terminal wasn't fully functional.
Setting 'el=\E[K' to the terminfo file seems to make less work, and it
seems to be the right thing to do for terminfo/ncurses.
If this makes sense, could it be included in the next ncurses release?
(I will revert less to just use termcap, but I wanted to report this
Will do -- ncurses is near the top of my queue for 1.5.0...
