Diff to remove reference to terminfo(5)

Chatting with RhodiumToad on IRC, they said that FreeBSD exclusively uses termcap, not terminfo.  The tput.1 man-page referenced terminfo(5) which had me chasing the wrong syntax, trying to use `tput setaf 4` (which had worked on my Linux install) instead of `tput AF 4`.

The attached diff should remove that misleading reference.
