I thought Tom had said that this was part of ncurses and svr4 curses that
they only had 8 colors, and slang pushed the package to 16, and that was
what the fix was for.  Is so, it would only affect slang binaries and not

Just out of curiosity, do these patches also give color on svr4 curses?
Was the info I sent on HP's color curses helpful, and is there a way to
build a color binary (or attempt to do so) on HP-UX?  I haven't had a
chance to try the code yet... :(  Too many tests and programs due (and
running late on all of them... sigh).  Maybe next week during Spring
Break. :)
