sys-libs/ncurses: modernize the fallback terminal list

We drop "sun" and "xterm-xfree86" as it's unlikely anyone uses those
anymore in fallback scenarios.  We add {screen,xterm}-256color as those
are fairly common defaults.  The size delta is negligible.

Backported from upstream ncurses-6.0-r2 ebuild
(commit 961bf0f53a7ac66bd84021d8e5e093f54cf5d972).

TEST=`TERM=xterm-256color less /etc/lsb-release`
