Now it throws me SSL errors for depecrated functions. I guess this version cannot be compiled with current libraries. Use snapshot for a newer version.

I'm welcome to receive patches to help this to compile.

This is probably the problem discussed below as of 2016-11-08.

Doesn't build for me, seems to die here:

/build/dcmtk/src/dcmtk-3.6.0/dcmjpls/libsrc/djerror.h:34:51: fatal error: CharLS/interface.h: No such file or directory

Complete build log here:

Hi to all ...
Just letting you know that the bug persists.

As of release 3.6.0 CMake is approved on *ix as well, see end of section "BUILDING (Unix)" of file INSTALL you mentioned.
Anyway the problem isn't that DCMTK 3.6.0 doesn't compile when CMake is used but that it doesn't seem to be possible to have it use system CharLS 1.x installed in parallel with 2.x representing the latest stable release. Are you saying it's this particular problem you could solve by using the autotools instead of CMake?

Why is this being built with CMake at all? The INSTALL file in the distribution says to use autoconf on Unix, and CMake only for Windows.

I get a full compile without errors if I just use autoconf...

Unfortunately this is a bit beyond my knowledge. What I've already tried is tweaking CMake variables, but to no avail. If you run CMake on the code as patched by this package there are three CMake variables dealing with CharLS. When CharLS is installed in /opt and these variables are set to
> -DCHARLS_INCLUDE_DIR:PATH=/opt/charls1/include \
> -DCHARLS_LIBRARY:FILEPATH=/opt/charls1/lib/[.1.0]
DCMTK compiles flawlessly yet CharLS isn't found due to faulty linking like in
> $ ldd /usr/bin/dcmcjpls
> [...]
> => not found

@pmattern thanks for the information. Maybe I could try to patch the source code to find the library somewhere?

Package charls was updated to the latest stable release 2.0.0 which is no longer compatible with DCMTK 3.6.0 due to massive header changes. I've prepared a package charls1 providing legacy release 1.x which is still maintained upstream and can be used to compile DCMTK 3.6.0 against.
Unfortunately I haven't found a way to make DCMTK 3.6.0 look for system CharLS at locations other than /usr/lib where it particularly looks for So I've made package charls1 conflict with all other CharLS versions available in Arch Linux. This seems a bit odd besides package dcmtk is the only reverse dependency of CharLS right now. So if you know a better solution which allows for e. g. installing CharLS 1.x in /opt or so I'm all ears.

This is the stable version, for snapshot version there's another package.
