Umm, yeah, that was me.  I assumed that anyone re-installing any part of
fortune would do the equivalent of a "make install" in src/games/fortune
and the new dat files would get installed too.  It looks like that a
"make build UPDATE=1" without a "make clean" could cause this - I wonder
if the correct fix is for the dat files to depend on strfile.{c,h} as

The alpha I was talking about was one of the machines I tested the
new format on - so obviously it's .dat files were up to date.  With
hindsight I should have sent a heads-up to port-alpha - my apologies
to all for that.

monop (the other one I changed) does rebuild the cards pack of
initdeck.c is changed, so this is ok.
