my S.O. is down in D.C. for the weekend so that gave me some hacking
time.  The Quake2-Max GL improvements have been added to CVS.  Update
and then set BUILD_QMAX to YES.

You'll need to do a total recompile.
"make clean; make" should do the trick.
When you want to switch back to BUILD_QMAX=NO, you'll need to do the

Please note that that binaries and drivers when BUILD_QMAX is set to YES
are incompatible with binaries and drivers when BUILD_QMAX is set to
NO.  This probably won't change in the future.  QMax adds some stuff to
a bunch of the client type definitions.  I don't think they should go in
unless specifically asked for.  Right now, the video drivers that are
built are ref_glx and ref_sdlgl, this will change to ref_candygl and
ref_candysdlgl when I get around to hacking the Makefile more.

I can't seem to replicate some of the screen shots, I don't know if its
because my graphics card is woefully old (ATI Mach64 [donations
anyone... ;-)]) or if there are errors in my port.  I'll look into it
some more. 

Hopefully some other folks can try it out and give me their impressions.
