Answering to myself : it was a temporary dependency problem from upstream. See

Not sure what happened but for me it fails with this message:

error[E0432]: unresolved import `core::hint`
  --> /home/me/.cargo/registry/src/
16 | use core::hint::unreachable_unchecked;
   |           ^^^^ Could not find `hint` in `core`

Another fix is to add at the end of the echo line | tr - _.

To fix this I've replaced the last segment of the pkgver with git rev-parse --short HEAD and it seems to work.

echo "$(grep '^version =' Cargo.toml|head -n1|cut -d\" -f2).$(git rev-list --count HEAD).g$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

git describe started returning v0.2.2-2-g4a8d18c because there is now tag v0.2.2; it leads to broken build with the following error:

==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to contain colons, forward slashes, hyphens or whitespace.
==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version:

Spent a long time fighting with this package to get it to build Disabling the "debug" switch in the pkgbuild prevents the DWARF debugging related errors. Remove all lto relating cflags and ldflags from your makepkg.conf

@samhh Please update your rust version.

Compilation fails for me:

FFY00 but this is a -git package, are you planning to rebuild it after every commit?
