So after staring at this for a few more minutes, I now have a version that
compiles with pbuilder and is also posted to my ppa (

The big issues with compiling were

   1. replacing the xxd package with vim-common as that's where Xenial
   hides the xxd executable.
   2. modifying the source in "Common/Rx/audio_CS8416.cpp" to add an
   include statement to cstring and changing the call to memcpy to be

Here's the diff for a patch file for "Common/Rx/audio_CS8416.cpp:

@John Poet - it may be worth appending some instructions to your
gitrepo Readme.md noting Ubuntu Xenial users will need to install
dependencies with

"sudo apt-get install libboost-log-dev libboost-program-options-dev
libusb-1.0-0-dev build-essential"

As well as apply the patch.
