@zyeri You need to clean out $srcdir before building, which you can do with makepkg -C

Build is failing: error states that a directory (src/binutils-build) already exists.

@kevr: base-devel dep is implicit (next time at least read other comments ;-) )

@tavianator Please include bison and other development dependencies in makedepends; it is not okay to assume that everybody has bison, and finding out that you need it after the entire compilation is pretty lame.

@kralyk: bison is part of base-devel, which you should have installed if you're building packages.

There's a missing makedepend: bison

@pmattern: The new PKGBUILD doesn't use the git repo any more. Instead it downloads the tarball and patches it.

@pmattern: binutils in [core] uses this git repo instead of a release tarball because "bug fix releases are rare". I wanted this package to be exactly the same binutils version as in [core], hence the git repo. For future updates, you won't need to re-clone the repo, so it won't be as bad.

PKGBUILD is stating two sources of the actual code which is confusing and should be avoided.
Regarding the choice I'm not sure whether using a VCS checkout is the best for this package providing a release after all. The download is about 250MB vs. 23MB. These sizes may assimilate if the VCS checkouts gets re-used but I don't know to what degree this is common practice. More importantly the Git repo cannot get downloaded via secure connections while the release archives come with PGP signatures. Couldn't see any problems using the release archive instead of a Git checkout here.

One of the tests in check() is failing. Just saying, no idea whether or not this is meaningful.
