Install OpenTTD (compile from sources) on Unix and Linux Systems

As a Transport Tycoon fan, I feel like teaching everyone how to install OpenTTD on every Unix and Linux System.

This installation method is generical, it works on all the Unix and Linux Systems.

1. Download the sources from your architecture:

* for 32 bit systems:

$ wget binaries.openttd.org/releases/1.2.3/openttd-1.2.3-linux-generic-i686.tar.gz

* for 64 bit systems:

$ wget binaries.openttd.org/releases/1.2.3/openttd-1.2.3-linux-generic-amd64.tar.gz

2. Extract the archive:

$ tar -xzvf openttd*.tar.gz

3. Make the propper configurations:

$ cd openttd*
$ ./openttd

4. Compile the sources:

$ sudo make

5. Install the application:

$ sudo make install

6. Removing the useless (now) files needed for the installation:

$ sudo make clean
