This is a quick guitarix update to cover the new release of jconvolver eg. jconv  

guitarix is a simple Linux Rock Guitar amplifier and is designed 
to achieve nice thrash/metal/rock/blues guitar sounds. 
Guitarix uses the Jack Audio Connection Kit as its audio backend 
and brings in one input and two output ports to the jack graph. 

To cover the renaming of jconv to jconvolver, guitarix-0.05.3-1 
looks now first for jconvolver, if it isn't installed,
it looks for jconv. 

Also a patch from Michal Seben (OpenSuse) is added to cover a build fail
at openSUSE:Factory. 
Thanks Michal. :-)

Additional, there is a (rt) 2 Channel delay chooser for the output to jconv,
and the Chorus effect work in Stereo now. 

have fun

For extra Impulse Responses, guitarix uses the 
convolution application 'jconv' created by Fons Adriaensen.
