Are you sure? I use mutt too (in an rxvt), and TERM=xterm works wonderfully
with colors. Hang on, will test mutt in plain xterm... yes, works there too.
I do have customized my .muttrc and app-defaults/XTerm, however to use
different colors from the standard ones. Maybe you have a stale termcap.db?

 cd /usr/src/share/termcap
 touch termcap.src
 make install

should run cap_mkdb termcap and install the termcap.db.

I wonder why/how these work on systems where the termcaps are also taken
from the XFree86 xterm. Could it be something else that's different on
your system? I find it hard to believe that any app would scan /etc/termcap
and ignoring what it finds in the environment variable TERM.
