The version of MetaPost that comes with MiKTeX doesn't
process colors in btex...etex. Dvitomp ignores them
when generating the corresponding mpx file.

There is a patch dvitomp.ch that enables dvitomp to
handle color specials which is included in
teTeX-beta-2.96-7 already.

teTeX's texmf/web2c/ChangeLog reads:

2004-03-24 Olaf Weber <olaf@infovore.xs4all.
* dvitomp.ch: Support for color specials, like those
generated by the colordvi package. From Eddie Kohler
kohler@cs.ucla.edu.

A discussion on that problem can be found on
de.comp.text.tex
URL:http://groups.google.com/groups?ie=UTF-8&as_umsgid=2opo3tFd95kpU1@uni-berlin.de&lr=&hl=de
(with relevant postings by Hartmut Henkel).

Is it possible to include that patch in MiKTeX?

Thanks,
