Thanks for that. Yes, I tried to investigate it a little myself, but I was also confused. I did see that that bug had been closed, but AFAICT it looks like those lines of code were still present. I really didn't understand the comments relating to the lines, as well. Hopefully the devs get back to you. Thanks again.

The update has been reverted, and I sent an email to the developers at the same time as I did the earlier update.

I did find that bug report when I searched earlier, which seems to cover the same problem. However, the bug was closed as fixed along with the 1.2.3 update, and we clearly still have the same problem. Message #20 mentions something with ifndefs, but I don't feel comfortable enough to start commenting out things that I have no idea what it does.

I'm not sure if this is related? https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=835074

However, in general, please don't upload broken PKGBUILDs to AUR! This is kind of pointless, and just means users have to specifically exclude packages from their upgrade tools. Having said that, I couldn't build the previous version of the PKGBUILD either, which is consistent with your hypothesis that GCC might be to blame. Could you please revert the version, flag package as out-of-date, and contact upstream (or perhaps post in the Arch forum)? Cheers.

Package updated to 1.2.3.

I cannot compile the package right now due to quite a few errors; as far as I can tell it is due to gcc 6 and limiting the way you can use new.

"non-constant array new length must be specified without parentheses around the type-id [-Wvla]"

Thanks for the help.

Recent changes in the default /etc/makepkg.conf remove all the libraries from this package in newer builds. PKGBUILDs without package functions are also deprecated. Here is a PKGBUILD with these issues (and a couple of other minor issues) corrected: http://ix.io/8Xg
