Somehow each time you post, you start a new thread.  When you reply,

Oh, right, I missed that.  Here's a much simpler change, which works:

In rar_fmt_plug.c change line 46 (in current bleeding-jumbo) from:



#if 1

That's all - no other changes needed.

Removing the #else and some lines following it looks reasonable to me as
well, but it's more work than the above.  However, removing this line
was wrong and may break other things:

Anyway, please revert all changes and try changing just the #if line as
I suggested above.

People are using JtR on various Raspberry Pi's.  It's just the RAR
support (and maybe a few other things) that is currently excluded from
such builds.  But please don't give up on it just yet - give the above
change a try, and let's see what happens.
