Synchronet now requires the libarchive development package (e.g. libarchive-dev on Debian-based Linux distros, for more info) to build successfully.

    Better error handling in QWK packet creation · 2245523d

    If libarchive creates a 0-byte file or no file at all, then fall-through to the "temp file command-line" (if there is at least one Compressible File Type configured).
    If libarchive fails, there will still be a (hopefully helpful) error message logged, but at least the QWK packet may still get created.
