Okay, I tried just ./configure, make, and make install by hand without the help of AUR and I still can't connect to remote repository for performing backups using dar because libcurl is disabled during the compilation time. I do have libcurl in Arch Linux. curl is version 7.79.

I would like to see libcurl enabled during the compilation time so that I can connect via sftp to perform a backup.

 $ dar -R ~/ -c sftp://gpeddie@storageserver/home/ldapusers/gpeddie/backups/backup-20211025.bak
Final memory cleanup...
Aborting program. The requested operation needs a feature that has been disabled at compilation time: libcurl library

In PKGBUILD, I would change:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --disable-dar-static --disable-static --disable-upx --disable-build-html ${EXTRA_OPTIONS}

I think the only way to do that will be to compile dar by hand so I can get libcurl support.

I wasn't aware of KDE Ark, but I have tried dargui with spotty results.

@Aaron-xn There is and also KDE's Ark can open them if dar is installed.

@Aaron-xn I'm just packaging, please report your ideas upstream. I'm not aware of any gui, I'm using dar on servers.

I would really love to have a GUI for my dar archives. :) Just say'en.

From 2.6.x to 2.7.0
- new feature: zstd compression algorithm added
- added lz4 compression algorithm

These packages should be in dependencies, I think.

2.6.13 has been out since Nov. 8, 2020. It built fine on my 64 bit arch. Please update the pkgbuild.

pkgver=2.6.13 sha512sums=('f0f853db6e15f5abfabf87be06a1c374662c7fa7e1140eaaeef3e8c8c4d0049a00a8e74409d6805ea3ae5b2f3171f2eba27459e8acb4438c467c4f0bd0825c0c')

BTW, the default for --enable-mode is 64 bits. It does not need to be specified for that case. Only needed if specifying --enable-mode=32
