It works :)

Sauerbraten is my favourite game :)
Quake-like FPS, based on Cube 2

I'd rather explain the whole thing:
I created a directory named "suckless"
in my home, so there I put subdirectories
(dmenu, dwm, st etc.). So,
in my .xinitrc and config.h of dwm and dmenu
I pointed to executables to ~/suckless/dmenu,
rather than simply dmenu. I had to change dmenu_path
accordingly, so that I have all of suckless things
in a single folder. Yes, it's stupid, but it's
temporary, else I don't want to "make install" just
yet. It works. So, in dwm's config.h I have
~/suckless/dmenu/dmenu_run that is invoked by Alt+p,
and when I press Alt+p, type "sauerbraten" and run,
nothing happens without output to my tty. When I enter
the directory ~/suckless/dmenu and run dmenu_run
(no output to terminal either) then
type "sauerbraten", it launches.
