@DarkShadow44 That type of error usually occurs when upstream reorganizes files and the package maintainer bumps without testing first. It's usually, but not always, straightforward for active maintainers to fix.

Since the same issue was already reported over a month ago, next steps would be to flag or open an orphan request.

I get install: cannot stat 'Detect-It-Easy/info/*': No such file or directory as well. Any fix?

Clean chroot.

Edit: The original author is added so he will try to fix when he has time

I'm busy with work and don't have access to my workstation so I can't fix this yet but if anyone want I can add you as maintainer. But be aware that this package receives a lot of unstable commits, it frequently breaks fom compiling, and top of that, it has a weird packaging architecture from the source code, very boring to maintain :D

can you add XFileInfo( to the sources and sub-modules as that is needed to build

EDIT: here is the patch
