Using Slackware64-current, but I guess this is not related to any

The game "Unvanquished" fails to run. The relevant output is provided

I commented the problem upstream and with their instructions I was able
to run the game successfully. These changes should be made for the game
to successfully run:

1. First, the SlackBuild downloads just *one* pk3 file, while there
are many others. All these should be downloaded in the same location.

2. The 'daemon' executable should be alongside the /pkg directory. That
is, provided that this SlackBuild installs the pk3 files in
the /usr/share/games/unvanquished/pkg path, then it should install the
binaries in /usr/share/games/unvanquished.
