I got build errors because the version on the Debian upstream has changed. I fixed up the PKGBUILD as best I could but it needed several changes before it worked. I removed the patch because that failed the build and I thought the new version may have dealt with that anyway. I had to add an autoreconf -fi for some reason because it said aclocal-1.7 missing. It is now building installing and running with my new PKGBUILD. I will post this in the next comment.

However, I can't use this after all because it defaults to a card that I'm not using and doesn't offer a way to change to the default card. The ncurses alsamixer is better.

Got this patch below from gentoo, it builds the package, but it's still the maintainer's responsibility to update this package's PKGBUILD.

Hi, during build I get the following error:

Updated to unzip the patch if not already unzipped (which was done automatically before).
