Hm, at least it had one… I just added the definition from st git master
to MirBSD, FWIW.

Well don’t do that ☺

That’s correct.

Not able, or just unknowing?

$ cvs -qz9 -d :ext:anoncvs_AT_anoncvs.fr.openbsd.org:/cvs \
    co -PA -d foo src/share/termtypes
$ cd foo
$ ${EDITOR:-ed} termtypes.master
then insert a (new) st definition appropriately, save and quit
$ make BINDIR=/usr/share
$ sudo make BINDIR=/usr/share install

This updates the system-wide copies of both terminfo and
termcap databases, from the same master source.
