Also, since AdvanceCOMP is developed on GitHub now, I decided to make a -git package for it:

The tools link against libstdc++, so please add 'gcc-libs' to depends array. Thanks!

For ArchLinux packages you're only supposed to add 'i686' and/or 'x86_64' to the 'arch' property. 'arm', etc. are not allowed. Most packages will work on 'arm', but they don't all have 'arm' in their PKGBUILD file. To build on ArchLinuxArm, you ignore the 'arch' property (-A / --ignorearch).

Why is that?

And you shouldn't add 'arm' to 'arch=' in the ArchLinux AUR, even if the package works on ARM.

The PKGBUILD shouldn't have that comma on the arch line:
arch=('i686' 'x86_64', 'arm')

1.19 is out.

Version 1.17 has been released. It includes a new DEFLATE algorithm called Zopfli, and allows you to specify a number of additional iterations to try.

Thanks Jesin. Updated.

This PKGBUILD fails when it is used inside a directory whose path contains whitespace. See for a fixed and improved PKGBUILD.

(There is no need to change the pkgrel, since anyone who has installed this successfully using the previous PKGBUILD will not get any different results from this version, so they do not need to reinstall. I recommend uploading this new PKGBUILD, however, as it is more robust and can be trusted to run correctly in more situations.)

matthiaskrgr is right, however I don't know if it _has_ to be included, it is not in base-devel but is a dependency of gcc which is. Anyone should have it installed anyway.

namcap says
advancecomp E: Dependency gcc-libs detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/bin/advpng', 'usr/bin/advdef', 'usr/bin/advmng', 'usr/bin/advzip']

Updated source.

The url of the sources has changed. I got http redirection twice. Works fine but it would be better to use the new url:

i have created a complete PKGBUILD fitting to my other advance mame packages:
