fgfs rightfully beeps. It found that it's in the range of an inner marker
that it hasn't indicated yet. I was never annoyed by this beeping. To ban
it, one just had to pretend that fgfs has already seen this marker. Shouldn't
have negative side effects anywhere else. Of course, fgfs would still beep
if it were started in the range of a middle or outer marker. But as inner
markers are the most likely ones, we might want to have this patch applied:
