New git version gives longer version numbers, no need to update.

I needed to do make -j1 DESTDIR ... in the build() section. I have j8 in my makepkg.conf. Perhaps the PKGBUILD should be changed to enforce -j1.

Well, I did not alter the PKGBUILD you provide...

When compiling, I get among other messages the following:

therein. I wonder why it states that it isn't a TDS-compliant directory

ball, the problem must be on your side. This package does not install to /usr/local.

I just wanted to rebuild the package but when trying to install I get:

Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Is this a packaging problem or a bug I should report on the auctex mailing list?

(I installed TeXLive manually via its own installer and I installed texlive-dummy. The texlive installation is up to date.)

Messages in th install file have shorter lines now.

haawda commented on 2011-12-13 22:45

Well, upstream would say, it is intended behaviour. And on a source based distro you ca decide on build time how the package should look like.

I changed the package so that it desides if /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d exists, and creates its couterpart in $pkgdir if so. Ths will give different packages to different systems, but should work on all.

Anonymous comment on 2011-12-13 19:03

I have proofgeneral installed, which also places its init-scripts there.

But I think the error is more on auctex's upstream's part, as they should not depend on what's in the ``real root'' fs tree. This creates problems (at least) for all source based distributions, right?

Perhaps it's best to create the directory in the PKGBUILD and delete it again afterwards, since the convention for emacs packages in arch seems to be not to auto-initialize anything and let the user do it instead. This solution is ugly, but I suppose it's better than to mess with the build system.

haawda commented on 2011-12-13 18:50

I can reproduce your error now after some investigation of the build system of auctex. If for some reason /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d exists on your system, auctex's build system tries to place its files there, but ths fails because in the "make install"-step redirected to $pkgdir this subdirectory is missing.

May I ask why /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d exists on your system? Did you create it manually or was it created by another package? If the latter is true, you can do a "pacman -Qo /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d/..." where ... is the name of a file in that directory.
