Distant Worlds 2 works again on Linux

QuoteChanges in (September 22, 2023):

IMPORTANT NOTE: Among other important changes, this one changes how we build DW2 so that it should be more compatible with Linux/Proton, for those Distant Worlds fans who prefer to play DW2 on the latest Quameno-designed operating system. While Linux is not officially supported by DW2, this should make it quite possible to get it working. If you have been struggling with DW2 on your Linux systems, please give this build a try and let us know how it works for you!

- changed game executable to better support Linux/Proton
