@Nathan67 Don't flag non-VCS packages as OOD, they will simply be unflagged. If you want the version without python2 then use dia-git. T̶h̶e̶ ̶b̶u̶i̶l̶d̶ ̶e̶r̶r̶o̶r̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶a̶g̶a̶i̶n̶ ̶b̶e̶c̶a̶u̶s̶e̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶u̶s̶e̶d̶ ̶a̶ ̶b̶r̶o̶k̶e̶n̶ ̶p̶a̶c̶k̶a̶g̶e̶,̶ ̶s̶e̶e̶ ̶p̶i̶n̶n̶e̶d̶ ̶c̶o̶m̶m̶e̶n̶t̶.̶

EDIT: Actually it looks like python2-bin has been fixed, dia now builds in a clean chroot with it. So idk what is wrong on your system.

As @susurri mentioned, please update the PKGBUILD, replace --with-python with --without-python to solves the build issue.

configuring --without-python solves the build issue. python2 has reached EOL for years and python support should be dropped until the upstream moves to python3.

Wikipedia might give an ancient release date, but there's definitely current development going on in the official git repo:

The warnings are mostly just the same warnings about deprecated preprocessor symbols such as G_FUNC_INLINE and G_CONST_RETURN. Still builds successfully.

The program / package could not be built. Dia seems not to be maintained anymore. Wikipedia dates Dia 0.97.3 to September 2014. Rarely I have seen so many warnings in program compilation, and finally an error brought the mess of compilation to an end.

@hfath if you're using python2-bin, I suggest not using that and using python2 AUR package instead. Builds fine for me in a clean chroot.

The build as of today breaks with

pydia-color.c:116:6: error: 'cmpfunc' undeclared here (not in a function)
  116 |     (cmpfunc)PyDiaColor_Compare,
      |      ^~~~~~~
pydia-color.c:116:14: error: expected '}' before 'PyDiaColor_Compare'
  116 |     (cmpfunc)PyDiaColor_Compare,
      |              ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You should be using Arch Linux archive and not other distro repos.

I have the same issue, this is unfortunately a dependency for the ns3 simulation program so it also breaks that package:

EDIT: you can install it through the manjaro repositories here:
