Possible patch for games/gnurobots but don't know what to do next.

Maybe I didn't explain myself fully. The binary package doesn't behave
as expected. Something about the default CFLAGS it is being built with,
has an unexpected result, and the interactive Guile command prompt never

You can see this yourself. If you execute the current binary package you
get a black area where a guile interpreter prompt should be, but there
is none. Expected behavior is to be greeted by "guile>" (Screenshot of
both behaviors attached.)

Thats why I started investigating rebuilding it to begin with.
Rebuilding it with different CFLAGS corrects the issue.

Though reading more FreeBSD documentation this shouldn't be patched in
the FreeBSD ports makefile like I have done. Though im not sure what the
propper fix is, to exclude a specific port from a global CFLAG.
