 For the record, when the PR was last touched in 2006 there were
 pending questions about what SETGIDGAME was supposed to mean, and
 whether pkgsrc ought to have a switch to turn off the setgid of games
 that will run without (which doesn't include angband actually) -- all
 that got sorted out later, SETGIDGAME has been deprecated for ages,
 and I should have closed this PR years ago.
