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

Upstream applied what's essentially the same fix:

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

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'.
