it's not quite like yours ... i attach two screenshots

1) with proper menu bar ... this is emacs running in its own window
with a color scheme it got from somewhere ... pale and cute but less
helpful for me

2) with pretend black menu bar ... and ugly underlining ... this is emacs -nw
running in an xterm ... as you mentioned, hacking the xterm color scheme
might be the way to go, but i haven't tried it yet ... turing up the heat
on those primary colors is what i'm aiming for :-)
