I used Crafty 18.10:


Crafty v18.10

White(1): Black(1): end-game phase
              clearing hash tables
note: scores are for the white side
material evaluation.................  -2.00
development.........................   0.00
pawn evaluation.....................   1.78
passed pawn evaluation..............   0.00
passed pawn race evaluation.........  -5.90
king safety evaluation..............   0.00
interactive piece evaluation........   5.30
total evaluation....................  -0.82

Note that the overall score is -0.82 (advantage to Black).

I guess I scanned the eval terms a little too fast and came to the wrong
conclusion.

Weirdly, the "passed pawn evaluation" is way biased toward Black, but the
"interactive piece evaluation" (which basically means miscellaneous eval terms)
largely cancels it out. I don't know where the +5.3 comes from.

Still, this version seems to be doing better than later versions, and the
overall evaluation at least has White close to even.
