When we run the pager, we always set "LESS=R" to tell the
pager to pass through ANSI colors. On modern versions of
FreeBSD, the system "more" can do the same trick.

Unlike "less", we may be dealing with various versions of
"more" that do not understand the "R" option, but do know
how to read options from MORE (Debian's "more" is an
example). For this reason, we make the setting a
compile-time option (but turn it on by default on FreeBSD).
