[gcu version] strange colors in old variants? the solution is here

First things first, I'm not sure this is already known, I did a search in the old posts but found nothing about the following 'problem', so I thought I could share a simple solution to it, just in case someone else encounters it while testing an old variant on modern systems.

On my xterm-256 colors terminal, some old variants like hellband, zangband, tome 2.3.5, scthangband etc get strange colors if compiled with the default options: for example, the help text is shown in red instead of white.
After a bit of experimentation, I found that simply commenting the line


in main-gcu.c and recompiling solves it...

Just trying to be useful
