Great, thanks for heads up! I'm ready to update FreeBSD port, though
I'm a bit confused with a lot of configure options, while I'd like
to simplify port tunables to not confuse users. Do I understand the
following correctly: there are roughly several sets of mutually
exclusive options:

Window management: glut/sdl/sdl2
Audio:             openal/sdlmixer/sdl2mixer
Imagery loading:   glpng/sdlimage/sdl2image
Font rendering:    ftgl/glc (?)

and I basically need to chose one for each category? Are there any
shortcomings of specific variants (e.g. afaik openal has better
stereo effects than sdl_mixer which only does simple channel volume
based panning) and is there a preferred configuration?
