[OS X Emacs] Unknown Color - Aquamacs 2.0

a few color codes have changed between Carbon Emacs 22 and Cocoa (NS) Emacs 23.
This should not really lead to crashes...
If you compile with
./configure --with-ns CFLAGS='-g -O0'
you should get good traces so you can pinpoint the location of the `abort' or crash.
gdb can help, too (but compile it as above for best results).
Hope that helps.
