==> WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir

cava is not working for me after install:

$ cava
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/usr/bin/.libs’: Permission denied
/usr/bin/ld: cannot open output file /usr/bin/.libs/10890-lt-cava: No such file or directory
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Perhaps related to this warning during the build?

$ makepkg

For those having problem where the visualizer doesn't start after you play a song, change autosens to 0 and sensitivity to 10, don't forget to uncomment those options

I'm getting build errors. Unfortunately I don't know enough about ncurses to figure out what's going on. Here's the output:

Until adjusted upstream, needs a little tweak to compile against current ncurses.

under build function add:

sed -i -e 's/ncursesw5-config/ncursesw6-config/' makefile

before the make call

hi alex,

I just pushed 0.3.5 yesterday.

Recently made the move to arch, so maybe I can take over the maintenance of this. Not 100% sure how things work around here, but I'll figure it out.
