Gudday.
 
Here is how I gave my XASTIR a RADAR style display
 
Login as root
 
1) Modify draw_symbols.c
 
add this (to make all text green)
 
 // finally draw the text
    fgcolor = 0x52;
    (void)XSetForeground(XtDisplay(w),gc,colors[fgcolor]);
    (void)XDrawString(XtDisplay(w),where,gc,x,y,text,length);  
 
2) Modify symbols.dat
 
delete all symbols except the first one and set it to a green diamond like
this
