Build Dependencies

myMPD has only a few dependencies beside the standard c libraries. Not installing the optional dependencies leads only to a smaller subset of myMPD functions.

You can type ./ installdeps as root to install the dependencies (works only for supported distributions). For all other distributions you must install the packages manually.
