Bug#397255: leaving as RFP again, no time for it

retitle 397255 RFP: irrlicht -- High performance realtime 3D engine
noowner 397255

It's been more than three months ago when I made a change on irrlicht's 
packaging. And after reconsidering, I've decided not to package it because 
I'm not very interested in using it anymore.

Anyone willing to continue my work on packaging irrlicht please see my last 
upload[1] to m.d.n. I remember some bogus things on the packaging so probably 
the best thing to do is carefully review all the current debian packaging.

Upstream has recently released version 1.4 of the irrlicht engine. In the past 
the existing Makefile was bogus and some workarounds were required, I don't 
know if this is still the case.

Some notes on the zipped-"sources" provided by upstream (they apply for 
version 1.3.1, I don't know about 1.4): 
* it contains pre-built binary files for windows
* lot of windows-only stuff around
* libpng, libjpeg, zlib: all of them shipped by upstream and used by default
* the media/ dir contains non-free stuff (and some other stuff that probably 
doesn't even fit for non-free)
* the Makefile is bogus: make clean will first build part of the sources and 
then clean! 
* sonames: I think they used the version number as the soname

I hope this information helps anyone trying to package irrlicht.
