31362: Make a gangster chase and pick up Sam
Used by the routine at 25385. Makes a gangster start or continue chasing Sam if appropriate. Whether the gangster continues to chase Sam depends on Sam's and the gangster's locations relative to the two regions defined in the gangster's region definition table. If Sam has left the first region, the gangster gives up the chase and restarts his command list; if the gangster has already chased Sam to the boundary of the second region, he will stand on guard there; and if the gangster is close enough to Sam to pick him up, he will do so and move to the next command in the command list.
