in mobact.c prototype hunt_victim as it is in graph.c
then add these lines..

if (HUNTING(ch))
  hunt_victim(ch, HUNTING(ch));

add the hunting var to the mob char structure (if its not already there
below the memory pointer), and have the HUNTING var set just like the
MEMORY is set, using a MOB_HUNTER flag to tell you when to assign the

the actual code for tracking is already included in stock, just not the
implementation (which is what this should do for you)
