Please excuse my taking forever to update to the package. I have finally incorporated most of the changes. Thank you Forty-Bot for your perseverence. Contact me, if you feel like more changes are needed.

Hi, can you please apply patches 3 and 4? The rest of the patches are more cosmetic, but with how the package is currently set up, it is completely broken.

First, it does not use the system libraries when it could with a few changes. This increases the size of the package, and may introduce security vulnerabilities by using old, unpatched versions of libraries.

Second, the current configuration creates morgue and saves directories in whatever directory the user runs crawl from. This breaks user expectations in a big way!

Third, the data for crawl is put into /usr instead of /usr/share/crawl. This violates the Arch Packaging Standards by putting data in an incorrect location. You should never create new directories in /usr but only in subdirectories.

Last, because you have different flags for when building and installing (not to mention an unnecessary -fPIC), crawl builds twice. While it does not take as long to compile as (say) gcc, crawl is not a small game. This can be fixed simply by ensuring the compilation flags match.
