[bug#43630] [PATCH] gnu: Add tic-80.

From: Chris Lemmer-Webber
Subject: [bug#43630] [PATCH] gnu: Add tic-80.
Date: Thu, 22 Jul 2021 18:32:22 -0400
User-agent: mu4e 1.4.15; emacs 27.2

I don't have a version fulfilling all the changes Ludo' recommended,
but I got this to build and run on my computer based on Gabriel's patch.

I also tried bumping to the latest version (v0.90.1706) but curiously
that one built fine but segfaults when you try to run it... some
floating point exception.  Just noting that in case someone is picking
this up and trying to advance it.
