Well it fails to compile on PI for me, though admitedly I haven't givent it
enough time maybe, also it's build system is not suckless, to say it lightly,
2.5K lines shellscript does not sound reasonable. This custom build system
might be responsible why I can not build it on PI, it fails to give any
reasonable error message, some compile time assertion fails, what a heck is
