@Un1Gfn apt is working now. Thank you!!

gtest provides /usr/lib/

gtest is already in makedepends=().

Maybe yay fails to install gtest before building?

Also if you yay <pkg> please yay -Syu <pkg> instead.

community/dpkg should be in depends=() instead of makedepends=()

I get the following error when dpkg is not installed (reference)

$ apt --version

My gist should work now. The namespace version of docbook-xsl doens't work with apt yet. See here

Please add "perl-pod-parser" and "po4a" to makedepends.

Line 36 shall be

DOCBOOK_XSL_VER=ls -d /usr/share/xml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets-* | sort | head -1 | xargs basename

The perl-pod-parser dependency is missing.
