It's an emacs -nw buffer (on a Linux virtual console, if you must know).

Right, an updated entry for eterm comes with Emacs.  It looks like this:

#       Reconstructed via infocmp from file: /subsys/emacs-21.4/etc/e/eterm
        am, mir, xenl, 
        colors#8, cols#80, lines#24, pairs#64, 
        bel=^G, bold=\E[1m, clear=\E[H\E[J, cr=^M, 
        csr=\E[%i%p1%d;%p2%dr, cub=\E[%p1%dD, cub1=^H, 
        cud=\E[%p1%dB, cud1=^J, cuf=\E[%p1%dC, cuf1=\E[C, 
        cup=\E[%i%p1%d;%p2%dH, cuu=\E[%p1%dA, cuu1=\E[A, 
        dch=\E[%p1%dP, dch1=\E[P, dl=\E[%p1%dM, dl1=\E[M, ed=\E[J, 
        el=\E[K, el1=\E[1K, home=\E[H, ht=^I, ich=\E[%p1%d@, 
        il=\E[%p1%dL, il1=\E[L, ind=^J, invis=\E[8m, kcub1=\EOD, 
        kcud1=\EOB, kcuf1=\EOC, kcuu1=\EOA, kend=\E[4~, 
        khome=\E[1~, knp=\E[6~, kpp=\E[5~, rev=\E[7m, 
        rmcup=\E[2J\E[?47l\E8, rmir=\E[4l, rmso=\E[m, rmul=\E[m, 
        setab=\E[%p1%{40}%+%dm, setaf=\E[%p1%{30}%+%dm, 
        sgr0=\E[m, smcup=\E7\E[?47h, smir=\E[4h, smso=\E[7m, 

But as this entry causes Lynx to freak out and not display the right, or
usable, colors, it's best to stick with the not-color-capable entry!
