I haven't gotten this to work (ls spits out random junk, clear complains that it doesn't know what an scoansi termianl is, vim looks strange, and also complains that it doesn't know what an scoansi is), but is it possible you want code like this?

Note that you'll want to install the appropriate package containing a termcap file. Debian doesn't install one unless something depends on it.
