define the same struct. (that answers some questions for me)

G_color_values() and G_color_name() as defined in named_colr.c are used
by d.rast, r.colors(, and the SWIG interface?).

PostScript will use 0.00->1.00 instead of 0->255


is the default MASK color still shocking?

Please post summaries of such changes to grass5 as it's hard to keep up
with, understand, and vet all changes in CVS. I'm going to try and
finish the symbol plotting function(s) in the next few days, no point in
doing things twice or "the old way".
