The -blink option has no effect in DOS or Win9x. It sets the
SLtt_Blink_Mode flag, which is only in sldisply.c. This module isn't
used in the DOS or Windows versions of slang. The code in the
src/LYCurses.c is ifdef'd VMS or REAL_UNIX_SYSTEM.

In the DJGPP version of lynx, compiled with slang, background is
intense if you specify an intense color. The default background for
COLOR:0 and COLOR:1 is white. I have this changed to lightgray so that
it matches what you see when compiled with PDCurses.

As far as I know, it is also impossible to turn off color with the
slang build. Neither the setting in the option page nor the -nocolor
switch have any effect. Color is hardcoded into the slang library for
