@maxbla I have updated the package to 1.9.1-2, accounting for the upstream Makefile error, allowing us to override the VERSION in the makefile with $pkgver from the package as it should be. Thanks for the report!

This PKGBUILD fails with fatal: No names found, cannot describe anything., which is due to the Makefile from upstream, which contains the line VERSION=$(shell git describe --tags --dirty). Because this package downloads a .tar.gz of the source, rather than git cloneing it, git tries to describe the AUR package, which contains no tags.

Suggested fixes: either clone the repository entirely, instead of downloading the archive, or patch the makefile to have a static Version (i.e. VERSION=1.9.1-1).

edit: I think this is a bug in the PKGBUILD, but I could be tempted to submit it upstream if you (mcoffin) think it belongs there.
