I do not. Do you have hardening-wrapper installed? If yes, deinstall it.

When I tried to compile the package I got issues similar as reported here (

It seems that this dependency is missing: extra/texlive-bibtexextra

(In order to have apa.bst for example)

Added texlive-latexextra to the makedependencies.

The package texlive-latexextra is currently needed by the PKGBUILD to make the PDF manual.

Thank you so much Stefan. :)

You have to change your file /usr/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf. The line "openout_any = p" has to be changed to "openout_any = a".

Hi, I'm not able to produce a html file with bitex2html. The program fails and prints: /usr/bin/bibtex8: Not writing to /tmp/bib2html842251.blg (openout_any = p).
If I run manually bibtex /tmp/bib2html842251, the blg file is made without problem. I also tried the same bib file on debian (v1.95), no issue. Does someone have the same error? Is is specific to archlinux?

added html-version of the manual and credits.

Adopted and rewritten PKGBUILD.

makefile.patch misses a line-end character at the end of the last line.

The package is orphaned. You can adopt and do it yourself.

1) hevea needs to be added to makedepends
2) To fix the failing compilation, apply this patch to the makefile:

patch -Np0 -i $srcdir/makefile.patch

I cannot build this package:
ocamlopt.opt -c
ocamlopt.opt -o bibtex2html str.cmxa options.cmx html.cmx latexmacros.cmx latexscan.cmx bbl_lexer.cmx bibtex.cmx bibtex_parser.cmx bibtex_lexer.cmx readbib.cmx expand.cmx bibfilter.cmx biboutput.cmx version.cmx translate.cmx copying.cmx main.cmx -cclib -lstr
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lstr
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
File "caml_startup", line 1, characters 0-1:
Error: Error during linking
make: *** [bibtex2html] Error 2

Even bumping to 1.95 did not fixed it...
