[Spacehulk-devel] QSpaceHulk rand.h fix

QSpaceHulk Developers,

    I liked playing Space Hulk and I was glad to see your open source version.

    After some package issues on Ubuntu 12.04 (my problem, not yours) I got to a compilation error in the rand.h.  I can't seem to find the actual error message other than a reference to "not knowing what srand() was".  I took a look at the header and the cpp... everything seemed fine.  Once I dropped in a "#include <stdlib.h>", to ensure it knew what srand() was, everything worked fine.  See attached for my modified rand.h.  (Nothing special, but it made it all work)

    I was thinking that other people attempting to compile your source might have a similar file.  I'm no C expert but I can't think of a reason *not* to include "#include <stdlib.h>" in the rand.h to alleviate similar issues with users less familiar with C.

    I like the program and I look forward to "vs. AI".  Keep it up!
