Hi again,

If anyone is interested in what appears to be the new, active upstream, please look for AUR pkg agg-2.6-git. HTH :)

Hi all,

This info is for reference.

The original agg project page URL, for ver. 2.4, is:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/agg/

AFAICT, agg ver. 2.5 was a straight relicensing of agg ver. 2.4 under the GPL with no changes to the code. As mentioned by AndyMender in 2020, it has been abandoned for some time by Red Hat, who appear to have been maintaining that ver. as one of their dependencies. As listed in this PKGBUILD, that reference URL is:

https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/agg/

A new project called agg-2.6 has been created to pick up from the ver. 2.4 software posted on SourceForge. This can be found at:

https://github.com/ghaerr/agg-2.6/

Reading the Discussion posts from the original SourceForge project page and the (out-of-date) Wikipedia page, there appears to be only one other actively maintained fork of agg ver. 2.4, whose URL is:

https://github.com/cppfw/agg/

From what I was able to find, other forks listed in those sources appear to be inactive since 2014. HTH :)

The Upstream URL leads to a dead Fedora project which has been removed in Fedora 27 (Fedora is at 32 right now), because patches were not accepted by main upstream. The main upstream itself seems to be dead, too.

I only found a git copy of the SVN repository: https://github.com/pelson/antigrain

Judging by the number of patches attached already, it's probably a good idea to look for alternatives :(.

I'm getting a build error:

libtool:   error: cannot find the library 'libexamples.la' or unhandled argument 'libexamples.la'

If I modify the ./configure line in PKGBUILD it works again:

./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static --disable-examples

(and remains usable as a dependancy for gnash-git)
