Indeed! The source of libunrar.so lacks thorough testing under *nix. I
needed to modify a few lines of its Makefile to make it work. Besides,
g++ would miscompile it if you turned on 'fomit-frame-pointers'.
Better we provide binary releases in our ftp server, along with binary codecs.

Good suggestion IMHO.
