Wow, this works great!  After the bug in the makefile earlier today, I 
had another (it couldn't find the GL headers).  Being this is my first 
day on FreeBSD, I set it aside for another day.  This installed 
flawlessly, and I played a few levels.  The other problems I was having 
with Linux and Windows (Matrox G450 flashing textures and hardlock) are 
gone too.  Thanks for the port!  I still have to rely on people smarter 
than me until I get oriented in this new os....
