I'm not sure, myself.

The only mention of NCURSES_EXT_COLORS I can find in documentation is
in the NEWS file, where it just says that it means "extended colors"
are available:


Searching for "extended colors" finds a paragraph in the INSTALL file,
which says that "extended colors" means supporting 88-colour or 256-
colour terminals, and is part of ABI 6:


This confuses me, because I've definitely been using the xterm-256color 
terminfo entry for a lot longer than Debian has used ABI 6.
