Interesting,  I can't find any documentation on color with curses on 9.07.
I also checked in /usr/lib/ to see if there was a termcap_colr/ like there
is on 10.01, and there wasn't.  Perhaps it's something that's in there but
not documented?

I think that will be an ultimate goal, but most gnu tools make SOME
assumptions about other gnu tools being on the system...

BTW, I've found that with lynx anyway, gcc produces a smaller binary than
HP's cc.
