Strip is a bad choice. You won't be able to report bugs. Use -O2 optimization. It'll make a clean build. If you can find a static build of the SDL library you'll do better, too.

Not sure what I should be looking for. Otherwise I see a character who needs to get back to town immediately for supplies--including ?recall--and who then needs to be deeper.
