@natebragg Probably a configuration issue on your end. Using pamac-aur, built and installed fine with pamac build debhelper.

I am getting the following error when I try to install 13.11.4-2 with:

pamac install debhelper

The error is:

==> Starting build()...
po4a --previous -L UTF-8 man/po4a/po4a.cfg
make: po4a: No such file or directory
make: *** [Makefile:72: po4a-stamp] Error 127
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Installing worked fine when I ran:

git clone && cd debhelper && makepkg -si

Upstream depends specifically on man-db. The command-line arguments of mandoc are different from man-db, causing at least one of the scripts to fail during runtime.

Is there a reason to depend on man-dbspecifically, and not man? mandoc works fine for building this.

OK, thanks! ♥

dh-strip-nondeterminism isn't a real dependency. The deb package probably includes it so deb devs can install all the tools they might need at once. It's also largely a duplicate of community/strip-nondeterminism, with the only difference being a single script. So I'm adding just that script to this package.

Should this depend on dh-strip-nondeterminism as well? The debhelper package from Debian depends on it.

It seems that there's a missing dependency: perl-pod-parser

This package was left behind it's development stage and is considered outdated

Please follow my debhelpergit at ttps://

I will probably provide dh_*git new PKGBUILDs too
