On slackware 10.2 I try to compile the latest ncruses 5.5 from the site:

You can only get extended colors for the wide-character flavor, as noted
        encoded.  This applies only to the wide-character (--enable-widec)

Oh darn.
Ok, got it to compile :-) Also test/ncurses (option d) gives nice

yes - that, and the option C screen are the ones I used for testing
(which is why option C provides for scrolling).

Now there's only an implementation issue; i can't get it to work.

#include <ncurses.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
        if (!can_change_color())
                return 1;

        init_color(1, 11, 11, 11);
        init_pair(6, 1, COLOR_BLACK);
        wprintw(stdscr, "test\n");

        return 0;

hmm - no time for debugging it at the moment.  But some ideas: I've
done most of the testing for this feature using color_set() rather
than the masking (other than checking that attron, etc., work properly).
So we might find a bug.  I don't see offhand anything wrong with the
test case - will look into it.

Compiling it with -lncursesw. Output now is NOT darkgray on black
but red(!) on black instead.
Running it with TERM=xterm-256color ./a.out    <- this works for test/ncurses.
