The dwl repository has been split into two branches to reduce the number of support requests caused by not reading the README. :) The default "main" branch is for building against wlroots release, and you can edit the PKGBUILD to use the "wlroots-next" branch for building against wlroots-git.

If makepkg is confused, you might also need to remove the existing clone.

Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this. If I start with a clean directory with only the PKGBUILD in it, the package builds successfully. Maybe if someone else has the same problem, they will be able to provide the solution.

I deleted the clone but it doesn't help.

Helped by replacing wlroots on wlroots-git.

Make sure wlroots-git is fully up to date and try again. dwl currently tracks closely with breaking changes in wlroots, and there have been a couple such changes recently.

After updating the system, the package stopped building
