Yes. You have to have #define SECURE UNDEFINED in config.h.
then setenv LIBDIR <whatever>. I haven't experimented with this,
so it might not work as expected. However, I think it'll try and look
for maps, archetypes, treasures, pixmaps, etc. there too, all the lib stuff.
You'll need either links or copies perhaps.

The question is, "who is the server running as" and "who can write to
the player directory" You might want to make a lib/players dir.
If the server is being run by someone not able to write in lib/players,
things are not going to work.
