odd - the only place I changed the configure script should not have broken
this (I built/deleted binaries on Solaris 2.5.1 yesterday for testing,
built/retained on Digital Unix, Linux and win32, and colors work properly
for me with xterm - can retest later today with dtterm on Solaris 7).

If that were xterm, perhaps it would be because the terminfo SGR 22 is
not recognized, leaving inverse video set (but iirc, dtterm does
recognize it).

they shouldn't be different - the only odd thing (other than that there
are differences) is that dev.19 was built w/o ncurses, and dev.20 with,
and that your gcc install was for Solaris 2.6 which may not work well
with Solaris 8.  ("May not" means that I'm one of the people who recalls
that gcc built for Solaris 2.4 didn't work properly on Solaris 2.5 because
termio changed).
