I've installed 9.0-RC3 amd64.  I'm trying to enable color output for 
ls.  I've issued the basic 'ls -Gla' but output is not colored.  Yet if 
I can get colorized output by providing color codes (echo 
^[[34mhello^[[37m produces a blue "hello") at the command line so I know 
my terminal is capable.

Is there some other secret?  This is a new install and I'm just trying 
to set things up.
