Mutt is not compiled with color support
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:09:21 EDT
The mutt-0.95.4us-4.src.rpm package in Starbuck
and RawHide is not compiled with color support
(one of the main features of mutt). The --with-color
should be added to ./configure's command line.
The second minor bug is that the spec file does not
build mutt with $RPM_OPT_FLAGS. It seems that mutt's
./configure does not set these flags from the environment,
so it should be added on make's command line as well.
The pseudo-patch to the spec file follows:
CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS -I/usr/include/slang" LDFLAGS=-s
- --prefix=/usr --with-sharedir=/etc --sysconfdir=/etc
--enable-pop --enable-imap \
+ --prefix=/usr --with-sharedir=/etc --sysconfdir=/etc
+ --enable-imap --with-color \
--disable-warnings --with-slang --disable-domain
+make CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS -I/usr/include/slang"
rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT
Color support is working fine here. What sort of terminal
are you using? (also, AFAICT, --with-color isn't even an
option to configure) I'll add the OPT_FLAGS stuff in the next

fixed in mutt-0.95.5us-2. If you manage to make it
not rerun auto*, the CFLAGS that are passed to configure
get passed through OK.
