Hey Keith,

The Select By Color tool might do the trick for you - it's a button
in the top row of the (default) main toolbox.  Turn it on, click in
an "average looking" part of the unwanted color anywhere in the
image, and see how close it comes to getting everything you want to
alter.  In the Tool Options dialog dock, you can adjust the
threshold of this tool to select a wider or narrower range of
colors, image-wide.

Once you have (only) the bits you want to change selected, you can
do any of a number of things:  Drag and drop your color of choice
from the foreground/background tool, use the Colors > Hue/Saturation
tool, or etc.
