Help finding termcap database file for use with emacs

  I get the following message when I start to run emacs 23.2:

% /opt/local/bin/emacs
emacs: Cannot open termcap database file

I know that there is some package that I've messed up but I can not 
figure out which one.   I have checked the dependencies for emacs: 
ncurses.  I forcefully removed ncurses and re-installed it and I still 
get the same error message.  I have also re-installed emacs and get the 
same error message.

Anyone have an idea on what package I need to (re)-install?
