In order to deal with upstream issue 2333 (, I recommend making this package depend on qt5-base and remove -DUSE_QT6=ON from the PKGBUILD.

Fixed, thanks.

Applied the patch, thanks! I also made issue 2171 on GitHub since I have a feeling it shouldn't be really needed to use presets in the first place, we'll see how it goes.

The code produced by the PKGBUILD doesn't work correctly because of missing compiler flags (-fno-strict-aliasing, and for Intel additionaly -mstackrealign). Try, for example, installing NEXTSTEP in an emulated Pentium machine. It behaves extremely erratic and is impossible to install. Instead of adding these flags, I've changed the PKGBUILD to use the provided cmake configuration files and disable the makepkg provided build flags. This leads to the usage of the correct compiler flags and NEXTSTEP works nicely. Thank you for providing this package.
