I just submitted a patch to update www/elinks and noticed that it is
compiled with --enable-256-colors. However, I can not take advantage of
this feature since xterm is not compiled with support for 256 colours.
I just added it as CONFIGURE_ARGS and now enjoy (OK, some sites are
pretty hard on the eyes) 256 colours in ELinks.
Is there a specific reason for this? I ask because xterm from the base
system also does not support 256 colours.
