Hi Pavel, hi list,

End of ./configuration:
Screen manager: ncurses
I tried ./configure runs with the following (selected) set of options:
a) --without-ncurses --without-included-slang \
b) --without-ncurses --with-included-slang
Don't use "--without-ncurses", it makes no sence.
Any configure option --with-foobar must make sense as --without-foobar
(= --with-foobar=no), e.g. if you're not sure about the defaults. Or
are you trying to say that "--with-ncurses" is _only_ meant for
pointing to ncurses' location? Okay, I stand corrected, but I find it
unclear. (./configure still always says "Optional Packages:
--with-PACKAGE[=ARG] use PACKAGE [ARG=yes]
--without-PACKAGE do not use PACKAGE (same as
--with-PACKAGE=no)". Your INSTALL file clearly does _not_ mention
"--without-ncurses", you're right.
If you have this problem (ncurses is found and used) when you don't
specify "--without-ncurses", then it's a bug.
Okay, I will now try
c) --without-included-slang --with-slang=/opt/proj/WDM/tools
Indeed, it does work. So I was definitely confused, and tried to
explicitely disable ncurses.
I don't want configure to be so foolproof at the expence of more code and
indentation in configure.in.

I didn't think it really mattered with 14 MB of code. ;-)
It looks like you are makeing too many implications. Are you saying that
mc with ncurses doesn't show the color?
I didn't know it should. I don't have any other programs to compare
Then it's another bug that should be reported properly.
Will do so.

I did not know it was one. Shame on me.
