There's often grass in the battefield. Sometimes sand or rocks, but not black matter. Does it work now ? Did you try with OpenGL disabled ?

Sorry, but current PKGBUILD file in ArchLinux AUR is getting an old revision: 10083.

By changing the line from:

before issueing makepkg command, I am now able to build the package fine and play with it.

My only surprise is the black background... was remembering grass.

I am/was trying to compile boswars on Arch Linux with AUR package at: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/boswars-svn/

I get:
At revision 10083.

http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2012-01/msg00265.html suggest that it could be because boswars need lua5.1 not lua5.2

Fedora seems to have applied the following patch to build with Lua 5.2:

Probably, a good fix would change the function detectLua in make.py, and would detect if the system have Lua 5.1, 5.2 or both, and define some symbols, to allow building the program in the two cases.

That said, I don't feel I know enough to make such a contribution.
