Thanks for report... I did only quick check for csh script and missed that
problem...sorry for that, thanks for report, will fix that in next rawhide
coreutils build after weekend.

better fix for colorls.csh

The first patch doesn't work if LS_COLORS= is in the environment already (e.g.
LS_COLORS is there, but blank).  This patch will set LS_COLORS correctly in
that case, mimicking the behavior of /etc/profile.d/colorls.sh.  The nested
"if" was the only way I could get it to work right in tcsh.

Problem is hopefully fixed in coreutils-6.10-5.fc9 - so closing RAWHIDE - anyway
I used completely different style, so please feel free to add any comments about
syntax of that layout (with added 256 colors support). TIA.
