You know the problem probably is that the server is the most portable part
of FreeCiv and the maintainers don't wan't anything that reduces portability.
If you want your server frontent to be acepted more easily try making it a

Try using the regular "8", "4", "6", "2" keys on your keyboard.  They
should work (you know the numerical keys over the "Q", "W", "E", "R",
"T", "Y") :-)
