Sub_title: turn based Civilization-like strategy game

FreeCiv 2.3.3

FreeCiv is a civilization clone, and a great turn based strategy game.
Compiled on Akita, should work on most recent pups.

Released 8th December, 2012

This is a really great game! One of my all-time favourites..

Dependencies: (NOT needed in Akita)

Ideally, get the needed packages from your Puppys repository.

This package might need: SDL, SDL_image, iconv

If sound is not enabled, try installing SDL_mixer.

Try running `freeciv-gtk` in the terminal, before you install these deps.
Or run this in the terminal:

ldd `which freeciv-gtk` | grep found

..that will tell you what you need to install.

Compile Options:

This one has been compiled to run as root, no need to load it up as a non-privileged user, such as 'fido' or 'spot'.
Thanks to Karl Godt for the tip.

Edited file ./utility/shared.c, line 1548: removed exit if run as root

./configure CFLAGS="-DALWAYS_ROOT" --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --enable-client=auto --disable-sdltest --disable-gtktest --disable-debug --enable-shared --disable-static
new2dir make install

I also stripped all pngs with `optipng`, stripped all bins and libs with `strip`
edited categories in desktop entry.
