Hm, well, forget about that then. I was more hoping for an integration
in the whole deken ecosystem.

Yeah, we don't want to go there. :)
Wow, that external has quite a turbulent history. I hope you can keep it
alive as new upstream!

Only few dependencies it seems, this should be really straight forward.

omg... indeed.
These two AUR dependencies [1] [2] seem odd though (and quite dated).

Does purr-data compile with fluidsynth > 2.0.0?
I will have to update it eventually.

Wow, lots going on in that PKGBUILD!

Are the submodules [3] special versions of the externals? Ideally one
would like to be able to build those separetely I guess (if possible).
It just looks like this is pulling in a lot of (legacy - such as
cwiid...  ewwww... I just deprecated that!! ;-) ) stuff.
Having yet another slightly modified version [4] of cwiid is just not
very pretty...
All these weird half-dead Nintendo libs... :>

btw: You have to quote $srcdir, as it potentially contains spaces! Most
of the time you can just drop its use though, as all PKGBUILD functions
always start with $(pwd)==$srcdir by default.

The big purge... hehe.
Hm, should be pretty straight forward to do though... I hope.
