The phrases used by spell_know_alignment() are
somewhat ambiguous, especially the evil half of the
range.

Currently:
1 "%s has an aura as white as the driven snow."
2 "%s is of excellent moral character."
3 "%s is often kind and thoughtful."
4 "%s isn't a bad sort..."
5 "%s doesn't seem to have a firm moral
commitment",
6 "%s isn't the worst you've come across"
7 "%s could be a little nicer, but who couldn't?"
8 "%s probably just had a bad childhood"
9 "I'd rather just not say anything at all about %s",

I think 1,2,3,5 are all fine, although I'd alter all of them
to indicate the white color of their "good" aura.
I think 4 needs to be more indicative that it is on
the "good" side of neutral. Maybe:
"%s's aura is a light shade of grey."

I think 6,7,8,9 all need to say "evil" more obviously.

So the final new indications would be:

1 "%s has an aura as white as the driven snow."

2 "%s is of excellent moral character, whose aura
glows off-white."

3 "%s is often kind and thoughtful, their aura is
predominantly white."

4 "%s's aura is a light shade of grey, they do more
good than harm."

5 "%s doesn't seem to have a firm moral commitment,
their aura is a dull grey."

6 "%s's aura is grey, with a tinge of red around the
edges."

7 "%s is very close to being considered evil, with a
predominantly red aura."

8 "%s's reddish aura shows that they are on the path
of darkness."

9 "%s has a red pulsing aura, showing no compassion
or mercy."

    This is not a bug. This is really a library problem.
