Added alt tag for Elephants (u.chariot) and Crusaders (u.knights) in all
supplied rulesets containing them so cimpletoon tileset can be used with
those rulesets.

Well, that depends whether we consider this just temporary emergency fix for cimpletoon (I don't want someone who has saved cimpletoon, tileset that is part of official freeciv distribution, as default tileset to client settings to be unable to load affected rulesets at all) or do we want to support any tileset without civ2 ruleset specific units to be used with the ruleset.

If former, we should keep fallabacks in minimum, reverting them once we have the gfx in cimpletoon, and maybe even committing them to stable branch only in the first place.

Bug #19998 notes that Cimpletoon lacks art for some of the Fundamentalism units (Elephants and Crusaders), a gap we hope to fill in the fullness of time.

Attached to that bug are some patches (file #16281, file #16282) which add fallback sprites to existing rulesets: Elephants->Chariot, Crusaders->Knights, the idea being that this is better than crashing out.
