Sorry, disagree again.

An optimised built will not make the thing _not_ work as asked.  It will 
crash, perhaps, or lock up... but it will initially work as it should.  On my 
Xatrix server I run every Sunday for friends I built the server ded code with 
Intels ICC and all the game stuff (i.e. monster code) taken out - but 
whatever I start game with the server  works.  Same here on my quake2 client 
Slackware 10.

No, the problems here are definitely file hierarchy/and or/the way it is 
started.  If it doesn't find pak files etc, then that is a set-up problem... 
not code.
