I get the following error:
==> Building and installing package
==> ERROR: license should be an array
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build blt.
Adding parentheses around the license should do the trick.

Ok. I've updated the package.

P.S. It builds but it doesn't work properly with gsas-expgui-svn + tcl (ver. 8.6) + tk (ver. 8.6). However, I don't know which package is to blame.

I've made it build on my 64-bit Arch machine again.
You may obtain my package from

The biggest problem with blt is that it is unmaintained for years and nobody fixes the errors...

It works like a charm, thank you very much :D
Well, I'm still wondering how to compile it but it's okay as long as it won't break (at least for now) :)

Here you go:

There can be one problem: the package is compiled with -march=native (it means core2 for my computer). I hope it will work for you. Nevertheless I'll try to compile to find some fix for this package (if I'll have some time...).

@b00rt00s: I've tried compiling blt using tck and tk from version 8.5 but it still failed, so I'll just wait 3 package you mention before

@b00rt00s: of course I'd like to, where can I download it? thank you very much :)

I tried find some patch for this, but I couldn't. My solution: I use tcl and tk from 8.5 series with blt compiled for this version. I avoid upgrading those 3 packages. If you'd like to, I could put them somewhere, so You can download it.
