I am trying to get terminal colors working in 10.9. I have tried ls -G, I have tried exporting CLICOLOR=1, I have set a bunch of different TERM settings and none of it works. Anyone know what the magic incantation is?

The default ls program on Mavericks is BSD ls, and ls -G is the magic incantation. The ls program included in GNU Core Utilities lists with color when using the --color=auto flag, ls --color=auto. If you've possibly installed Core Utilities and neither of these work, try firing up a default Terminal.app profile (Basic, for example) and see if that works.
