Freeciv 2.1.0 Now Launches Properly Under Leopard

Even with reader j's suggestion, my launcher still didn't work properly under Leopard.

Nonetheless, I modified my launcher such that when it is running on Tiger, it used the pre-existing way of starting the game.  When running anything newer than Tiger (Leopard and beyond), it would launch X11 first, and then launch the game client.

The question then is how the launcher figures out whether it is running on Tiger or Leopard.  I'll save that for another post.

I tested the modified launcher on both my Tiger and Leopard machines, and the results are satisfactory.
