HOWTO: id3lib
Description: Library for reading, writing, and manipulating of id3v1 and id3v2 tags

NOTE: I use GNU tar >= 1.13.25 so it's -j for .tar.bz2 files,
it's safe to assume that make, gcc, binutils, fileutils/coreutils, gawk, sed, and grep are prerequisites for almost everything

# id3lib 3.8.3
# ============
# Prerequisites:
# zlib
# libiconv (may not be necessary, see the howto)

test -f installed/id3lib-3.8.3.tar.gz && mv installed/id3lib-3.8.3.tar.gz .
test ! -f id3lib-3.8.3.tar.gz &&
mkdir -p -m 0700 src
cd src
find -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "id3lib-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
tar xzvf ~/id3lib-3.8.3.tar.gz
cd id3lib-3.8.3
test $UID = 0 && chown -R root:root .
su -c "make install ; ldconfig"
rm -f installed/id3lib-*.tar.*
mv id3lib-3.8.3.tar.gz installed/
