after running make install when installing screen from source I got a message saying termcap entry (./terminfo/screencap) should be installed manually.

You may also want to install ./etc/etcscreenrc in /usr/etc/screenrc

any help?

    There's a clue in the makefile here Specifically at lines 183 and 184 "# Better do this by hand. E.g. under RCS... # cat ${srcdir}/terminfo/screencap >> /etc/termcap" – Elder Geek May 11 '17 at 12:27
