I did -

   defaults write Emacs Emacs.background black
   defaults write Emacs Emacs.foreground mediumspringgreen
   defaults write Emacs Emacs.cursorColor yellow

But launching does not seem to pick it up.  I can
specify these colors from the command line using the "-bg",
"-fg" and "-cr" options.

I see in the Message buffer the following:

  'Unable to load color "darkblue"'

This message shows up even if I start it with '--no-init-file'.

Any suggestions?  Is there anything short of rebuilding with
some debugging enabled to diagnose this?

Note: the Emacs manual include with the release still references
the older file under the "Mac OS" section.

The file is now ~/Library/Preferences/Emacs.plist. The name has changed some time ago when the Release Candidate 3 of was released.
