For clarity here... I'm missing whatever I was supposed to see in
those files.  But I thought those files controlled the behavior of the
color aspect of `ls'.  I've used a custom ~/.dir_colors for years, not
liking the defaults in /etc/DIR_COLORS

Where I'm seeing a problem is not with the way `ls' output is displayed.

I see man pages in colors that do not work well in black xterms.
Also escpe sequences in vim.

Are you saying DIR_COLORS* can change that.... If so, how is this
done?
