Bug#933248: RFS: assaultcube/ [ITA] -- realistic first-person-shooter

I agree, there was no change in the license, so I left it as it was in the
orphaned package. I just organized 'debian/copyright' by adding all licenses
presented in the game directories.

The game is being mirrored in an 'experimental' branch [1], to be played on
Windows and MacOSX with the updated SDL2 library.

With that, I just removed the directory containing prebuilt Windows binary
sources and some Makefile fixes to create the game binary.

No, this package is the complete game to play. ;)

Exactly, in this case would the game have to be 'non-free' rather than
