Converting extended terminof capabilites to keycode

Hi all,

I am looking for a portable way to determine the key code for an
extended capability entry in the terminfo base. I am especially
interested in a lookup for CTRL/Alt-PgUp/PgDn combinations (kNXT5/kNXT3
and kPRV5/kPRV3).

What I found so far is to lookup the key ESC-sequence by e.g.
 char *name = tigetstr("kNXT3");
and later check with 
 int code = key_defined(name);
if the sequence is defined and getting the associated key code as an
side effect.

I would like to know if there is a more direct way to ask for the key
code associated with the capability name. Any help is welcome.

Thanks in advance,
