Older versions of the mutt port used the slang terminal library, which
had (has?) a bug that assumed that all xterms supported color. It
didn't matter what your termcap says.
If "tput Co" prints '8', your termcap entry supports colors.
If "ldd usr/local/bin/mutt" shows libslang instead of libncurses, it'll
display colors no matter what.
