I've recently had to build the 'unrar' utility on my Odroid XU4 after installing DietPi on it. I know it is available on the non-free repository and can be installed using apt-get, but that didn't seem to have the latest version so I decided to build it from source instead. Turns out it's quite easy.

First a few prerequisites need to be installed...
apt-get install make g++

Then download, extract the sources, compile and install it.
wget http://www.rarlab.com/rar/unrarsrc-5.4.5.tar.gz
tar -xvzf unrarsrc-5.4.5.tar.gz
cd unrar
install -v -m755 unrar /usr/bin
