I tried to add png binding and failed so i temporarry commented it out. For 
png support it of course should be uncommented.

Just to review once again native Makefiles suplied with sources :)

Well, technically this would be possibly IF openttd used SDL_mixer engine -> 
wave/midi streams were handled by same engine and co-exists fine. 
Unfortunatelly, this isn't so -> in order to add MIDI support i need to 
heavily patch sources -> i guess SDL_mixer support is a dedicated work for 
the next openttd release.

So my conclusion ATM - no midi in this version.

ps: while MIDI files supplied with original data package playing just fine on 
NetBSD. But it requires exclusive audio lock..
