Important quote from the changelog:
- Updated MEKA license, data are now licensed under the same term as sources.
The license is now unrestrictive BSD-like. [Omar]
Prior packages had no clear license (see sources.txt) and should not be distributed or at least hard masked.

Only so many hours in the day, man. I've been trying to bump one other game for about two weeks now.
Created attachment 711015 [details]
Had a partial look at this package (to build from source), leaving something behind in case someone want to finish (otherwise, last rites).
Upstream released a 0.80-alpha (as "2019-12-13") which isn't "too" bad, adds allegro:5 support and works on ~amd64 (current 2021-05-07 snapshot hasn't changed much since the alpha release).
Attached ebuild makes a mostly-normal-looking installation but is not usable (see notes inside). Paths shouldn't be that bad to fix, but with other issues made me want to back away.
Considered 0.73 with allegro:0 to see if fixes some issues, but it has bundled libraries, 32bit remnants, and greets by ignoring CFLAGS for -march=pentium -O6 (six!) -ffast-math -funroll-all-loops
