sndtools on Arch Linux

In preparation for something I will hopefully start in a year's time, I've been looking at audio analysis and visualisation tools. I was taken by the sndtools set of tools in terms of size and effectiveness, so I've packaged them for Arch Linux.

Each of the separate tools are packaged, with JACK (except rt_pvc, which is ALSA only) and ALSA versions; and I have created meta packages so you can just pull them in for the appropriate audio framework.

The meta packages are sndtools-jack-meta and sndtools-alsa-meta; and you can find the separate tools, along with other things under my listing in the Arch User Repository.

To get the meta packages to work you'll need to pull in all dependencies: so using aurget it'd be

aurget -S sndtools-foo-meta —deps

Each tool should then build.
