That's your problem, right there: Emacs assumes that rxvt's background is
light (because that's how rxvt behaves by default), so it uses a wrong color
scheme.  Customize the background-mode frame parameter to `dark', and the
colors should be more readable.

Not on my terminal.  Where do you see the yellow color that is too bright?

It's possible that the X colors that your setup defines for the 16 standard
ANSI colors are not ideal, or perhaps your display's gamma correction needs
some futzing.
