Follow-up Comment #6, bug #51272 (project octave):

As a temporary (ugly) work around, since I found that many system(...) calls
are at the root of disabling color at the command  line, and that system('')
re-enables it, I added the following to my path:

function [a,b] = system(varargin)    
  [a,b] = builtin('system',varargin{:});
  builtin('system','');%restore color to command line

I also call system('') at startup.
I am guessing there is a less ugly workaround if the octave source itself is
edited, but I haven't had time yet to try and look at, edit and compile octave
source yet (since I've heard compiling can take hours).
