I suggest changing colors via command-line options -- for example, "-colorWhite White". Otherwise, the default colors are specified in x11/pdcx11.c, in the app_resources array.
Note that you can also use A_BOLD to brighten the foreground and/or A_BLINK to brighten the background; but I don't know how or whether you can apply those in your .therc file.
