[packman] Kodi Package to be compiled with libshairplay

First off, thanks for your contributions to the SUSE community! I've been
using your repositories for years.

I have been recently troubleshooting an issue with Kodi (previously known
as XBMC) on my OpenSUSE 13.1 system. I have Kodi-14.0-8.2.x86_64.rpm
installed and am trying to get Kodi to work with AirPlay for iOS devices.
My troubleshooting is logged on the current thread in the Kodi forums here:

Essentially, the AirPlay function in Kodi isn't working because the package
is not built with the libshairplay library included. This library can be
found here: https://github.com/juhovh/shairplay, as well as in the
additional Multimedia repository on OpenSUSE (

This brings me to two requests:
- Could you please include/support shairplay in your repository.
- Could you please build Kodi with libshairplay installed and detected. As
per the forum, you should see in the config.log for the Kodi configure a
"AirTunes support: yes (libshairplay)" line entry if successful. You may
also need the -devel lib for shairplay.

Doing so will enable Kodi to work via AirPlay and take advantage of its
full functionality.

Thank you in advance.
