M.A.X.R. (Mechanized Assault and eXploration Reloaded) is a fanmade strategy 
game by the community of maxr.org. MAXR is OpenSource and a remake of
the old M.A.X.by Interplay from 1996 featuring network games based on TCP/IP 
(e.g. over the internet). The game can be played in a turn-based mode (with or 
without time limit), or simultaneous mode (all the players take their turns at 
the same time), and features combat in air, land, and sea. Three resources are 
present on the maps - Raw Materials, which are needed to manufacture units, 
structures and ammunition, Fuel, which power generators need to function, and 
Gold, which is used to purchase upgrades. This game is a mix of realtime and 
turnbased strategy with battle chess character.

- Please add FDL as an additional license on the license tag
- If we remove the automake command, we could remove BR automake, 
autoconf and libtool
- Please start the Menuname with an uppercase.
- Build on koji failed (http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1136545)

* Why to you call automake, if you not patch the Makefile.am files

automake was obsolete, so i removed it and the BR. automake was used in older releases of maxr. The other points are also fixed.

Thank you for your comment!
