sopwith for Debian

I suggest you play sopwith by running 'sopwith -q'. The music really is
terrible. Really truly terrible.

Oh, and quit via Ctrl+C. Ctrl+C three times if you're in a real hurry.

Ah, it's not that bad.  You're looking for nostalgia, right?  I remember
playing this on a 19" TV wired up to a huge, 40-pound 286 Compaq "portable"
with an amber monochrome monitor.  Woo-hoo, Saturday night entertainment!  It
just wouldn't feel right without the audio. :)

To that end, it did take me a bit of screwing around to make the audio work on
my system.  First, remember to start sopwith with -p, which enables audio.
Then, in the program, make sure to press the s key to turn on sound effects.

For me personally, audio seemed to work best when I installed
libsdl1.2debian-alsa rather than libsdl1.2debian-oss.  YMMV.
