termcap is old, and I'm betting that xt5250 is looking for something in terminfo (unless you are on an old release of Solaris). So I think what you need to do is this:

tic sun/xt5250-color.terminfo

You probably need to do that as root. Then xt5250 should be able to find the definitions when it starts the xterm. It does so with the -tn flag to xterm:

-tn xterm-5250

Another thing to check is if you have ncurses installed. I'm not sure on this, but ncurses may be required for colour support.
