The problem might be solvable by documentation.

I read the INSTALL file.
I build from Subversion trunk
Revision: 7197
I unpacked d2x-xl-data-1.15.69.7z under /usr/local/games/d2x-xl .
When running /usr/local/bin/d2x-xl it gives the error messages about files which are missing.
The following output is from a program run.

D2X-XL: Error:

Critical - D2X-XL couldn't find the following Descent 2 files:

alien1.pig, alien2.pig, fire.pig, groupa.pig, ice.pig, water.pig, descent2.hog, descent2.ham, descent2.s11, descent2.s22

Warning - D2X-XL couldn't find the following Descent 1 files:

    D2X-XL does not provide the core game data files because these are still proprietary. You can purchase them e.g. at www.gog.com for USD 5.99 (Descent 1 + 2).
