FreeBSD's libcurses is ncurses, and it also uses the same terminal
descriptions that terminfo-using systems do (just in termcap format),
so you shouldn't have any problems.  If you want to be portable across
all systems, I think some commercial systems' curses libraries don't do
color, so you'll have to check for that.
