I couldn't figure out how to compile the game, so I did a bit of looking and found out that an older version of Freeciv (2.1.6) comes pre-compiled.
Not as good as Civ 4 but definatly worth it if you don't wanna spend money on that game.

Great CIV 2 clone. It worked on my Mac without any trouble. I don't know why people are talking about compiling. I don't even know what compiling is.

The game comes with an installer and is a lot of fun.

when you run Free Civ, chances are that you are missing the important X11 files, and you cannot get them.
Tough luck for us all.

f12x if it doesnt need compiling how do you make it run on a mac?
