I just tried it on my other arch64 machine and it build flawlessly.
Perhaps you use some tool like yaourt that changed something in your include paths?

It doesn't compile for me,
[code]configure: WARNING: the SDL library was not found. You will not able to use this program in a window manager environment! If you have the SDL library installed somewhere try using the --with-sdl-prefix option.[/code]
[code]yaourt -Qi sdl
Nome : sdl
Versione : 1.2.15-6
[/code]
This is the output of the compilation: http://pastebin.com/X7SUqMsa
This are the errors of the compilation: http://pastebin.com/rdwCNqqV

The strange thing is that if i compile it by my own it compiles :
[code]
== Host ==
Environment : x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
Endianess : little
Bits : 64
Assembler for Pentium : no
Assembler MIPS3 emulator for Pentium : no

== Drivers/Libraries ==

Keyboard : raw event
Joystick : raw event
Mouse : raw event
Misc : zlib expat pthread freetype2
configure: WARNING: the SDL library was not found. You will not able to use this program in a window manager environment! If you have the SDL library installed somewhere try using the --with-sdl-prefix option.

== Compiler ==
CC : gcc
CXX : g++
CFLAGS : -march=native -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-stack-protector -Wall -Wno-sign-compare -Wno-unused
LDFLAGS : -s

== Configuration ==
Emulator : mame
Debugger : no
[/code]
Even if then it doesn't work, probably because of the sdl problem I don't have any clue.

Unable to initialize the video driver. The errors are:
fb: Unsupported in X. Try with the SDL library.

Updated.

You need to update your PKGBUILD so it works with pacman 4.1 (which requires a package() function):

build() {
cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
}

package() {
cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
make bindir="${pkgdir}/usr/bin/" \
datadir="${pkgdir}/usr/share/" \
mandir="${pkgdir}/usr/share/man/" \
pkgdocdir="${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/${pkgname}/" \
install
}


Also, namcap tells me advancemame depends on freetype2.
