OK, your /bin/ls does not like the order of the arguments. What happens,
if you call

# /bin/ls -al --color=never /u/autobahn/scripts/.

address@hidden:/root] /bin/ls -al --color=never /u/autobahn/scripts/.
total 9
drwxr-x---  16 devel  devel   512 Apr 28 17:03 .
drwxr-xr-x  21 devel  devel   512 Jun  1 15:57 ..

Furthermore, during its initialization, Tramp checks whether the
"--color=never" argument can be applied. What do you see when calling

# /bin/ls --color=never /

What is the return code?

How would I get the return code? Here is the output:

address@hidden:/root] /bin/ls --color=never /
.Xauthority compat
.bash_history dev
.cshrc etc
.dist_version foo.c
.exrc foo.c.33.mach
