I originally thought this should be in the "extra" repository.

7thSon - you need to install base-devel group if you want to build packages from AUR. This is listed in article.

I'm getting a build error with the latest version (5.1.8):

checking for lex... no
configure: error: required program LEX not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
 -> error making: autofs

Is this a known issue?

Thanks @Scottaroo! I incorporated your fix and pushed as update.

Sorry. Two lines:

sed -i -e "/^#include <linux\/fs.h>$/d" modules/parse_amd.c

sed -i -e "/^#include <linux\/fs.h>$/d" modules/parse_sun.c

While you are correct that recent changes with glibc have caused this to stop building and that it isn't autofs' fault, it's not a mistake or bug on glibc's part. They have made this change and they are ignoring people complaining about it. They expect people to update their code and live with it.

Commenting out "wrong" includes will fix the problem. In prepare(), you just need:

sed -i -e "/^#include <linux\/fs.h>$/d" modules/parse_amd.c sed -i -e "/^#include <linux\/fs.h>$/d" modules/parse_sun.c

and the package will build again.

Recently installed glibc and linux-api-headers have a conflict: /usr/include/sys/mount.h (from glibc) and /usr/include/linux/mount.h (from linux-api-headers). This is not autofs' fault.

I'm getting build error, It seems to be a problem with glibc 1.36?

/usr/include/linux/mount.h:95:6: error: redeclaration of ‘enum fsconfig_command’ 95 | enum fsconfig_command { | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Can add aarch64, works fine.
