A friend who is a FreeBSD user tried to build Netrek Vanilla 2.11.1 from
source and had a few problems, and sent me the write-up.  

I've pushed a patch into my repo that fixes the missing include for
signal.h in ntserv/main.c, and I'll tell my friend about it, but for
the interest of other FreeBSD users ...


Summary: install autoconf 2.59, libtool 1.5, gcc 4.1.2, gmake 3.80-2,
turn off PLAYER_INDEX in config.h.in, install expat 2.0.0_1, fontconfig
2.3.2_5.1, freetype2 2.1.10_3, libdrm 2.0.2, pkg-config 0.20_2,
xorg-libraries 6.9.0, then configure and build.

Do we have any active FreeBSD users on this mailing list?

  * freebsd compilation fix, missing header
  	* ntserv/main.c: add signal.h include, after a report from a FreeBSD
  	user showed that my enthusiastic trimming of headers had broken
  	compilation on other operating systems.
