That's because suse decided that it already provides enough term
programs. This has nothing to do with the apt repository.
BTW: you can just grep for the packages, as explained on:
http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/home.html#contents

This results in:
apt/SuSE> zgrep -i eterm */i386/base/contlist.bz2
8.2/i386/base/contlist.bz2:eterm;0.9-766;i586;base
9.0/i386/base/contlist.bz2:eterm;0.9-904;i586;base
9.1/i386/base/contlist.bz2:eterm;0.9-1038;i586;base

Of course you can start building the rpms you miss AND have
them provided via the apt repository. The fastest way to do this
is by having the apt repository rsync a machine were you store the
rpms you have build.
