        I believe that 'chess_rules' is defined in db.c as a global char
pointer.  It's given it's info in the section with all the
file_to_string_alloc() calls.  If it's giving you that problem, simply
make sure that the line:

extern char *chess_rules;

        appears in the special(chessboard) definition.
