Hi, this package is out of date, the current version is 0.1.19

bcftools now is installed as pointed out by buttons. Thanks.

To modify the pkgbuild:

Change the make line to remove "all". For some reason "all" doesn't build bcftools, which is required for SNP calling. "Make" by itself does, though.

Add the following:
# Install bcftools
cd bcftools
for f in $(ls -l)
if [ -x "$f" ]; then
install -m755 "$f" "$pkgdir/usr/bin"

And change the misc stuff to cd ../misc instead of directly to misc.

This package needs to install bcftools as well, which is distributed with samtools.

Hi superbobry,

1. Because I tried to install TopHat with libbam.a in /usr/lib and I couldn't.
2. Because other softwares (like TopHat and Bio::DB::Sam from Bioperl) seem to use libbam.a as a static library
3. I don't use any software that request libbcf.a. Do you know any?

Hello, three things here:

1. Why do you install libbam.a to /usr/local/lib instead of /usr/lib?
2. Why don't you build a dynamically loaded version (I know it's not in the 'Makefile', but still)?
3. There's also libbcf.a in the 'bcftools/' subdirectory, which probably should be installed as well.

actually I'm not an active bioinformatics student anymore, so don't keep track of whats
going on with samtools etc. Therefore, I'm abandoning the package, so that any of you
can pick it up and give it some love ;)

Hi, Vrob!

Thanks for the pkgbuild, would be nice if you could update it to version 0.1.18. :-)

Let me know if you are too busy to maintain the package because I can adopt it! :-)
