[packman] Kodi Leia PVR Addons: Fail to build due to an error in a tarball in a tarball...

the current package sources from home:sagiben/kodi.binary-addons contain
a line:

  Source3:        kodi.binary-addons.tar

which itself contains a file "build/download/vfs.libarchive-master.tar.gz"
which then fails during compilation (for openSUSE_Leap_42.3) due to two
undefined types:

  error: 'la_ssize_t' does not name a type; did you mean '__ssize_t'?
  error: 'la_int64_t' does not name a type; did you mean 'u_int64_t'?

After unpacking the tarball(s) I fail to see these two types being
defined anywhere - however, compilation on openSUSE_Leap_15.0 succeeds.
Could it be that this file should

extern "C" {
#include <unistd.h>

which would then #include <bits/types.h> for the missing types? Don't
know, though, where the #define for 'la_ssize_t' and 'la_int64_t' should
then come from, but that is probably the usual configure trickery.

How is such a file in a tarball in a tarball supposed to be patched? Or,
how is the first tarball generated?

HTH, TIA, cheers.
