FYI I've made a lot of progress towards a .deb package. Revamped the build process with autoconf/configure along the way. Right now there's still binary incompatibility because Debian has libpng17 and Ubuntu libpng18. After revisiting this page I see Rednaxela's advice about libpng12, so I'll give that a shot next. But at worst, I'll be able to offer .deb's instead of .zip's, it's no worse in terms of binary incompatibility, better installation process, run from anywhere and data's stored in your chosen location (like on Mac), and I can see about submitting the source package to the Debian repo so you can eventually get the binary you need in whatever distro.

And hopefully wxWidgets 2.9 and SFML 2 will hit Debian stable eventually and make my life a little easier...

Also someone came along and packaged it for the Arch Linux repository, which was a nice surprise. His first pass is semi-broken because it was before I did all this other necessary stuff to make it work smoothly running from an installed location, but he has my latest code and I think will update it sometime.
