:This is a (nasty bad) base64 output from the i386 using
:lynx -book >lynx.out:

Nothing wrong in this area.  Uses bold yellow on blue.  Would need output
from something which does go wrong.

:This is a similar, but swell, base64 output from the v162 (netbsd
:1.4.1) using lynx -book >lynx.out:

This has no colour sequences in it.

:(It doesn't.)

pkgsrc mutt doesn't use libslang (though you only have to change
two or three lines in the pkgsrc/mail/mutt/Makefile to have it do so)
And then you can do "default" colours.
