AFAIK, most terminals support "regular" colors only as s background.
Look at, section
"Setting Character Attributes"

I am using Midnight Commander 4.6.2 built from FreeBSD ports.  It's
currently built against ncurses, but if that is causing the problem, I can
use a different library instead.

I think, ncurses library behaves as s-lang one.

OK, thanks for the reply.  I was expecting it to work with mc because I
am able to use bold colors as backgrounds in other applications like Alpine, for example. I switched to a s-lang build to see if it would change anything, but it didn't.

Oh well, good to know it's not a Midnight Commander bug at least.
