Hi Thomas.

Two weeks ago, i sent the next message to the current maintainer, no
response so far:

Hi Edward, i'm writing you to suggest the dropping of esd from
qemu.SlackBuild (--audio-drv-list=alsa,oss,sdl,esd)

As a reference:
* Debian: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=633390
* Gentoo & Arch: i don't see them using it in their builds.

> Hello there,
> I've had a closer look at the qemu SlackBuild and now I'm wondering about
> some of the constructs in there.
> The checks for libusb, spice and usbredir seem to be completely redundant
> because qemu's configure will check for availability of these features and
> enable them when possible.
> The check for the device tree compiler seems to be even more than
> redundant, because this isn't even an optional depedency as the dtc has
> been bundled with qemu since at least version 2.0.0.
> Most configure options just state the defaults.
> The OS_CFLAGS parameter is probably meaningless; it's not used anywhere in
> the makefiles.
> A propos make... to get a parallel build (e.g. with MAKEFLAGS=-j4) you
> have to "make config-all-devices.mak config-all-disas.mak" first,
> otherwise "make" will run a single job only which will take quite a while
> when building all targets (anybody with a better understanding of "make"
> care to explain?).
> Maybe the qemu SlackBuild should get a cleanup (and an update to 2.1.2).
> Cheers!
