I can confirm it's working now. Don't know what went wrong the last time, I can't reproduce it.
Sorry to bother you. :-)

Commit 5a7fd007e89bb343ab2024d9a87d54bbee997bbf seems to build/test/install just fine via makepkg. Does your current working directory path use a symlink? There have at least been historical bugs related to that, and those bugs may still exist.

make test
works from cloned git repo, but not when called from makepkg. Does anyone know why?

bfr commented on 2013-12-03 20:42

Please switch to using the repo instead, see the notice on

Thanks, LongHairedHacker. I just added `t/' directly to the relevant command line, as I'd rather be conservative about such things.

just short notice your sed commands miss one occurrence of python.
There is one in t/

sed -i -e 's/python\b -c/python2 -c/' t/*.sh

instead of

sed -i -e 's/python\b -c/python2 -c/' t/

should fix that.

I get an error on building, see .
PKGBUILD only works when I add
sed -i -e 's/-Werror//g' Makefile
to prepare()

This one updates how git is accessed, as per `man PKGBUILD'. Sorry for any trouble this may cause people.

Hmmm. so make test doesn't work on tmpfs it seems, so yaourt will fail to build it. Hand rolling works though. I've sent a msg to the mailing list, might get a change to look at it over the weekend.

Broken on current git, needs the following change:

Tests are also failing, but that is probably a different issue with my filesystem.
