I think all recent xterms are compiled with support for 256 colors. For
that to work, it should be sufficient to set TERM=xterm-256color. Even
putty understands those ansi color codes, I think.
If you know, your terminal supports colors or your terminfo database is
too old, try setting 'term' option to ansi and t_Co=256 which might work
and always did, when I needed it.
