the game "hunt" in the package bsd-games fails to start
when connecting to localhost. It asks you for a nickname and teamnumber, but when you select localhost as the server, you get:
hunt: Version number mismatch. No go.

This is a known upstream bug that has been fixed in recent versions; see:

Additional info:
* package version(s)
community/bsd-games 2.17-12
* config and/or log files etc.

matthew@stargazer:~$ hunt
Enter your code name: test
Enter your team (0-9 or nothing): 2
<a ncurses dialog in which you select a server opens>
hunt: Version number mismatch. No go.

Steps to reproduce:
Install bsd-games on a x86_64 machine
run: hunt
enter a nickname and team, choose localhost as the server.
