I'm still really busy with offline stuff, accepting co-maintainers

please comment if there are any issues.

The make install step is still missing the DESTDIR environment.

Hi, feel free to add me as a co-maintainer.

The upstream URL https://github.com/szpajder/RTLSDR-Airband now redirects to https://github.com/charlie-foxtrot/RTLSDR-Airband as the project was handed over to another dev, see - https://github.com/charlie-foxtrot/RTLSDR-Airband/discussions/342

The following patch solves the issue for me.

unless you need mirisdr it's optional. in the PKGBUILD i removed 'libmirisdr' from depends & makedepends. to the build() section, added -DMIRISDR=OFF \

after it didn't work, changed the package() section as well

rtl_airband looks for default config in /usr/local/etc/rtl_airband.conf but '-c' allows for alternatives: $ rtl_airband -c /etc/rtl_airband/basic_scanning.conf
