It looks like your shell is unable to find a terminfo file for
eterm-color.  On my system, there's an eterm-info file that came with
Aquamacs and one that came with Fink's terminfo package.  I'm not sure
which one ansi-term uses, nor how to figure out which one it uses.

But I see this, with fink in /sw:

$ locate eterm-color
