@jumper149 I wouldn't say this package isn't properly maintained. These issues seem to be prevalent with recent changes to GCC. To my thinking, we're attempting to compile software on a new GCC, software that was written without the new GCC warnings into account. We can't fault the maintainer of the AUR package.

But the software authors are fixing the issues, it seems. The new GCC warnings have been getting plenty of attention, it seems, as I searched for similar errors.

Thanks for pointing out the -git package. It compiles and runs smoothly.

Im having the same compilation error as @bwmcn. Is this package maintained properly or is it better to just go with the '-git' version? @bwmcn there is also the 'chez-scheme-git' which is compiling fine (needs to download 1 GB of repositories tho)

Getting a compilation failure. Searching for similar errors suggests that this is related to the new `warnings' produced by GCC. Any insights appreciated.

Fails with a ld error unless `LDFLAGS="-ltinfo"` is added before configure command.

More info

Upstream applied what's essentially the same fix:

Might be worth including beneyal's suggestion in the PKGBUILD until there's a new release?

beneyal commented on 2017-06-05 22:27

Due to a new warning introduced in GCC 7, and the -Werror compiler flag, compilation fails with Wimplicit-fallthrough.

An issue has been reported on Chez Scheme's repo, but there's no response by the time of this writing:

Current workaround is to add "CFLAGS=-Wno-implicit-fallthrough" (without quotes) to the "./configure" line in PKGBUILD.

I'm getting a build error. Any ideas?

Why are the bundled dependencies removed, and replaced with the git versions?

Just curious, as it makes this package something like 'chez-scheme + some-git stuff'.
