The short answer is that Lynx asks for BOLD with colors irregardless
of which library it is linked with, but Slang ignores the request,
because it only handles terminals where bold or blink cannot be
combined with color.  (I just verified this with TERM=xterm-16color)
(It's another issue - like the enable-underlines option - whether Lynx
should combine BOLD with colors).
