Port Request: The Battle for Wesnoth (Free AND Open-source!)

This free open-source game looks amazing:

You can find the game and the source here:

http://www.wesnoth.org/

This could also be a great game to add to the repository since it's free.

I had a quick go at porting this a couple of weeks ago as the recent opendingux update allows 640x480 downscaling now. I did a simple CMake -DCMAKE-TOOLCHAIN-FILE=/path/to/toolchainfile and it failed requesting libboost. I haven't been back to this since then but I'm sure it's fixable. Not sure how readable the text would be though on 320x240...

Revisited tonight as I would love to play wesnoth too. I correctly linked the libraries and boost is found. Unfortunately Wesnoth still requires pangocairo and fontconfig, both of which are required libraries in order to compile successfully.

I once compiled them, so at least it's possible.
