You should add CXXFLAGS+=" -ffat-lto-objects" before the cmake invocation in build() to support LTO.

You should also replace make -C build by cmake --build build, make -C build test by ctest --test-dir build and make -C build DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install by DESTDIR="$pkgdir" cmake --install build to support different cmake generators.

A few comments on the package:

  • It fails when starting check() because there's no longer a 'test' target in the makefile generated by CMake
  • would it be possible to build Catch2 in release mode?

Adopted and fixed.

package does not build anymore. I think it does not like the in-source build

[ 1%] Linking CXX executable SelfTest /bin/ld: cannot open output file SelfTest: Is a directory

can be fixed with out of tree build

build() {
    cmake -S "$srcdir/$_gitname" -B "$srcdir/$_gitname/_build" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX="$pkgdir/usr" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR="lib"
    cmake --build "$srcdir/$_gitname/_build"
check() {
    cmake -S "$srcdir/$_gitname" -B "$srcdir/$_gitname/_build" -DBUILD_TESTING=ON
    cmake --build "$srcdir/$_gitname/_build" --target test
package() {
    cmake --build "$srcdir/$_gitname/_build" --target install
