Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.15, Package name: vms-empire-1.15, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

VMS-Empire is a simulation of a full-scale war between two emperors, the
computer and you. Naturally, there is only room for one, so the object of
the game is to destroy the other. The computer plays by the same rules that
you do. This game was ancestral to all later expand/explore/exploit/exterminate
games, including Civilization and Master of Orion.

        Full ANSI prototypes for private functions as well as public.
	Markup fix for probability table.

1.10: 2013-08-22T23:47:21Z
	Fix core dump when a satellite bounced off the world edge.
	Full ANSIfication of function prototypes (which fixed the
	sat bug - the code appears to have been tickling some obscure
	bug in the compilation of function calls with K&R-style prototypes).

	Drop RPM packaging. Documentation cleanups.

1.8: 2010-10-21T12:47:33Z

	License changed from Chuck Simmons's cosmetically tweaked clone
	of the GPL to GPL proper, so the classifier systems that forge
	and archive sites use will be less confused.

Log message:
Bump all packages that depend on curses.bui* or terminfo.bui* since they
might incur ncurses dependencies on some platforms, and ncurses just bumped
its shlib.
Some packages were bumped twice now, sorry for that.
