If anyone has the patience to try to extract the LICENSE from help/gettingstarted.html (in 15 minutes of awk scripting I had to crop the license, and then try and fail to cut the tags and &; special chars) it could be generated at build time.

The icon that comes with the game (icon.xpm) is not showing up in desktop file previews for me, and its also an incredibly low-res 48px. So I just grabbed a CC one online and attributed it in the pkgbuild.

This script could easily? be tailored to extract the game data from Setup/zip/h2.zip on the Windows CD, but that would require makedepends on unzip. If anyone actually has Windows CD for this game I could add support in probably half an hour, just mention it in a comment.

The video files are... tricky. On some tests I've found running the game with them present to screw up the X server. If they are posing an issue for you, comment out the three lines packaging them, unmount the CD before you run the game (or the binary reads the videos from disc) and the game just skips them.
