Here's a package with GGZ support:


but for some reason the Freeciv client doesn't connect to the Freeciv
server. With the internal GGZ-GTK client the client freezes when trying
to launch or join a Freeciv game and with the external GGZ-GTK client
the Freeciv client gets started and shows the start page, but no message
from the Freeciv server appears. According to the ggzd debug log
(DumpFile option in ggzd.conf), the GGZ server didn't even receive the
launch/join request from the client. Other GGZ games work fine, though,
and there's also no problem with a linux client connecting to the same
server, so I'm a little clueless about this problem at the moment.

The attached patch was necessary to get the Freeciv client running at
all with GGZ support on Windows. It sets the HOME environment variable
before GGZ-GTK initialization, because GGZ-GTK depends on HOME for its
configuration file (crashes otherwise).
