Bug#529626: Print black-and-white rather than colour on serial console

So I bisected those images and found that libnewt is the problem.
This puzzled me because libnewt didn't change a lot during that time
(but there was a major new upstream just a few weeks before then);
but then I asked Joey (who runs the armel dailies) whether the system
might have been out of date and he confirmed that libnewt0.52
0.52.2-11.3 was installed when the 20090501 daily (that works) was

So libnewt0.52 0.52.2-11.3 worked, and 0.52.10-1 introduced that

Alastair, can you please take a look at this?
