A belated reply to this early December question: there is no support in FrameMaker Unix for either 15- or 16-bit color. Your best bets are 8-bit or 24-bit. Even if you find a way to run FrameMaker in this mode, there will be nasty memory trashing happening underneath that will eventually cause a crash or data corruption.

FrameMaker has had this limitation for several releases; mostly nobody noticed. But it turns out that a lot of Linux users run with 16-bit video, so we've received a fair amount of feedback in the last few weeks about 16-bit color.
