The "View PKGBUILD" link in the web site isn't showing the enable_alsa update, but it is in there. I updated the package to -5, try it.

I'd like to recommend the following changes to the PKGBUILD file...

/usr/bin/make || return 1
/usr/bin/make enable_alsa=1 || return 1

so that the control works out of the box with alsa instead of having to load the snd-mixer-oss kernel driver for /dev/mixer emulation.

This is also documented in the source README file...
Compile with:
make enable_alsa=1
The plugin will prefer alsa and fall back to oss when there is no alsa support.

I believe install is to be found in /usr/bin/, rather than /bin/. May I suggest the following changes:

Does this come with the radio plugin as well? I noticed it appeared when I installed this. If it does come with radio, you should advertise it because I was searching for that plugin (as well as this one) but there is no radio plugin in the AUR.
