You may also need to fiddle with /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm[-color]
to get colors in an xterm.  The color assignments are in
XTerm-color, and I've never figured out how this file ever gets
sourced.  I always just rename XTerm to XTerm-nocolor, create a
soft link from XTerm to XTerm-color, and change the "#include"
line in XTerm-color to include XTerm-nocolor.  Then, I think you
have to invoke the xterm command with the "+cm" options.
