OK, but the port's *.lua scripts in DATADIR may conflict with the ones
from game data directory. I've left a note about it in pkg-message for now.

Nah, I only wanted to test the game. Feel free to include and modify the
port in your repo[1]. And I'd suggest using Andrew Church's repo for
distfile, it allows to build the game against system lua, freetype,
libvorbis, libogg which would reduce the cost of maintaining them
separately from their ports.

[1] it'd free me from having to find the place to host distfile, too
