A summary of replies follow:
1. Does the machine have /usr/share/lib/terminfo files?
   This suggestion was the answer to my problem! Thank you Steve
2. I'll guess that the version on your SS2 is corrupt. Rcp a copy from
   another workstation and compare with the other. If corrupt, restore
   Not the problem but a good trouble shooting step.
   Thank you Kevin Thomas.
3. DBX core. I`ve never used DBX, I prefer to run GDB and watch the
   program core dump interactively.
   I did not have to pursue the problem this far.
   Thank you Anthony Stuckey.
