Build-gnuradio script: Why duplicates in PKGLIST?

For example, for Ubuntu, ‘git-core’ and ‘libusb-1.0-0-dev’ appear twice.
Is that important?

Other comments:

  • The sudocheck function and others leave out the ‘Yes’ variant. Tricked
    me a couple of times!

  • It would be good to segregate the packages that are needed for GUI
    support, to make it easier to remove for a non-GUI device.

But make no mistake, thanks to Marcus for a very useful script.

Probably from merging two lists, and failing to remove the dups. I
don’t think it does any harm.

It was never the intention for build-gnuradio to be anything other than
a way for new users to get up and running as painlessly as possible in
the
“most usual” configuration. Introducing more variance in possible
outcomes means a lot more work for me, and a departure from the main
purpose.

Since I got no response to my call for someone else to take it over, I’m
resisting adding new features…
