Attached patch copies relevant bits of barbarians/pirates.ruleset bodily into civ2/nations.ruleset to quell the warnings.

(civ2 nations seem to have only two leaders each, but I wasn't sure what the right thing was for barbarian nations, so I kept all the leaders.)

Yes and no. civ/2 had just one barbarian nation that could attack either from land or sea. Freeciv has always had them as separate players. Hacks of earlier versions where those players shared same nation were very ugly and buggy, so we made separate "Pirate" nation for sea barbarians.

I think it's harmless. Certainly when I just tested civ2, I had no trouble running into pirates.

The obvious way to fix it is to fork barbarian/pirate nations, the same way all the other civ2 nations are forked. (Did civ2 even have pirates?)

Loading civ2 ruleset with -d 3:
3: Nation Barbarian: Unknown group "Core".
3: Nation Pirate: Unknown group "Core".

I'm not sure if this has potential to cause any real harm in game when barbarians are supposed to appear.
