Look at this comment:

They say you should not edit /etc/makepkg.conf like dokie80 said. Instead just edit the PKGBUILD for audit.

dokie80 commented on 2015-11-29 04:32

sorry nvm.. this post is very helpfull :

- change "!staticlibs" to "staticlibs" in /etc/makepkg.conf
- install abs = sudo pacman -S abs
- run abs to generate file tree
- navigate to /var/abs/community/audit, copy the folder "audit" to other place ie. home folder
- navigate to ~/audit
- run "makepkg", will generate a file with .tar.xz extension.
- run "sudo pacman -U ~/audit/audit-2.4.4-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz" (file name maybe different if there's update)
- try install e4rat again

hope this help other noob like me.

can you please describe how to rebuild audit (read it from wiki) for e4rat to work?

swiftgeek commented on 2014-09-08 09:10

Read ArchWiki about abs and PKGBUILDs -.-

Sorry, forget it. No idea what happened but I reinstalled the deps and tried again, now everything worked fine. Third times a charm ;)

My build fails, can anyone help me figure out why?

You need to recompile audit package with staticlibs option, thanks to new policies :<

At least It's only needed once since e4rat isn't developed anymore and it's static ;)

(This package has far to low amount of votes to go back into community or extra)

Does not compile:

I don't get it at all… why just not give people the choice -.-
