You could put specific XTerm.vt100.color0, color1, etc settings in
your .Xdefaults file and not be bothered in future if they change the
defaults. Check out the section "VT100 Widget Resources" in man xterm.

You might also find it useful to examine the file:
for the MacOSX xterm or:
for the MacPorts version. I presume Fink's version is in the same place
but with /sw instead of /opt/local.

In fact, changes to that file probably underly the changes you see.

The impossible we understand right away - the obvious takes a little longer.
