I assume you mean terminfo.src (ncurses doesn't come bundled with termcap.src).
The usual place to look is when linking with shared libraries to ensure that
the copy of tic which is being run is based on consistent libraries (I seem
to recall some issue with this).  The 5.2 tic requires the 5.2 libraries
since it relies on new (private) interfaces.  Normal applications would not
be affected by this, but tic and infocmp are.

I'm running Slackware 7.1 at the moment (ncurses 5.1 works fine).  For
testing purposes I left the ~5.0 tic in /usr/bin, and linked 5.2 statically.
(Some other distributions such as Redhat I simply reinstalled ;-).
