putty should be recognized as xterm-compliant - reopen of #49

Description

In that ticket the solution was: use environment variable TERM=xterm.

But the problem is different: the terminals putty and putty-256color exists, and are xterm-alike.
I think it could be a good idea to add a check in main.c and key.c, in addition to the already-existent checks for konsole, rxvt, and others.

I attached my patch to mc-4.7.0.1 version.
