In rxvt COLORFGBG can be used to determine the fg and bg color used by
the terminal.  Emacs can use that to set the `background-mode', and
all the faces are defined based on `background-mode'.

It might be interesting to evaluate this:

M-: (frame-parameter (selected-frame) 'background-mode)) RET

in the old and new emacs and see if that changed.
