Heh, yes, I just completed Basic Combat Training :-).

I tried with the nvidia driver (from ports) and a GForce Ti4200 card. 
Setting __GL_SINGLE_THREADED=1 is necessary or the game won't start.
I don't know if the game can be played with other cards (UT2003 for example
can only be played with nvidia on Linux/FreeBSD).

It feels flaky: I had it hang a couple of times while loading a mission, 
and sometimes it's crashing, either on start or on exit with a Backtrace:

Also, there are these messages:

fcntl: Invalid argument
fcntl: Invalid argument
Xlib:  extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".
fcntl: Invalid argument

but I think they're harmless.

Tried this on 4.8-stable. Having remote access to the machine is recommended
to 'kill -9' when it misbehaves.
