As far as I know, CircleMUD doesn't even use any blues or yellows in the 
stock code - and no bright colours at all.  You might want to play with 
your monitor's brightness and colour level adjustments (if it has them, 
if it doesn't then I might go o far as to suggest a new monitor).  
However, if you're really hard set on the ANSI codes, the only codes are 
in <screen.h>, which is missing intense (bold/bright) colours, you can 
change that by adding:

#define KBLD	"\x1b[1m"
#define KBLK	"\x1b[1;30m"	/* 0;30m would be black, useless */

And the appropriate other defines in <screen.h>  However, I suppose if 
you make everything dark blue... :)
