Sorry, I was somehow assuming that the *compilation* buffer was in
comint mode. Actually, setting ansi-color-for-comint-mode to t and
invoking:

    C-u M-x compile RET ls -l --color=always RET

uses comint and produces ansi-color-ful output. Omitting the prefix arg
shows ugly ansi sequences and no color.

I don't use colorgcc or any kind of wrapper. I have colorful messages in
the compilation buffer thanks to compilation-mode's own output parsing
and font-lock settings.

More precisely: if I launch a regular compile with

    M-x compile RET gcc whatever.c

I get no ansi sequences in the output. That's why I said that gcc is not
responsible for the sequences.

The OP's "javatolatex" (iirc) probably pipes gcc's output through a
wrapper. Either he changes his script to not produces the ansi
sequences, or he switches to comint-based compilation and sets
ansi-color-for-comint-mode. Once this variable is set, he can also use
either M-x shell, or M-x term.
