The logical thing to do is to modify $room:look_self to include a listing 
of exitis in the room.

Here's the codee I wrote on one MOO for $room:tell_obvious_exits (tnt rxd),
which should be called from $room:look_self.

 1:  if (exits = this:obvious_exits())
 2:    exit_names = {};
 3:    for x in (exits)
 4:      exit_names = {@exit_names, x:title()};
 5:    endfor
 6:    player:tell("Obvious exits:  ", 
 7:  else
 8:    player:tell("There are no obvious exits.");
 9:  endif
