+lingot (musical instrument tuner)
+Lingot is a musical instrument tuner. It's accurate, easy to use, and
+highly configurable. Originally conceived to tune electric guitars,
+its configurability gives it a more general character.
+By default, this script builds lingot with JACK support, meaning
+jack-audio-connection-kit is required. Most people who connect musical
+instruments to their Slackware box will want JACK, since it's required
+by most serious studio apps (e.g. ardour).
+If you want to build without JACK support, set USE_JACK=no in the
+script's environment. The resulting package will only support OSS audio,
+since lingot doesn't have native ALSA support (but works OK with ALSA's
+OSS emulation).
