I downloaded the quake2-r0.16.1.tar.gz file from but 
I can't build it on my FreeBSD (4.11) machine. I'm not experienced with 
solving these sorts of issues so bear with me. I edited the Makefile and 
set everything to NO except:


But I still can't get it to compile without getting lots of this spammed 
in the console:
"Makefile", line 329: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 330: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 331: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 333: Missing dependency operator
"Makefile", line 334: Missing dependency operator
"Makefile", line 336: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 338: Missing dependency operator
Unknown modifier ' '

All I have tried is just 'make'. I didn't see anything in the README 
that stuck out to me as a solution. Would love to fire up some Q2 action 
again. Any direction would be great.

Also I didn't see a FAQ on the site, but I assume this 
release is compatible with the default 3.20 client from id?
