Compiling Descent2 for Linux

Do you remember the Descent game? It is pretty old (1995), but it was a funny game. I found two implementations for Linux:
d2x-sdl:
http://www.icculus.org/d2x/

d2x-xl:
http://www.descent2.de/d2x-install.html

I think d2x-xl is more “updated”, but I just tried to compile d2x-sdl. I got it compile fixing the Makefile:
d2x_sdl_LDADD = ${d2x_LDADD} -lm -lasound -lesd -laudio -ldirectfb -laa -lpulse-simple -lcaca

Also created the /usr/lib/libpulse-simple.so link because it was missing on my Ubuntu.

It compiled fine, but I don’t have the game data to test, sucks!
