thanks for the update, needs pandoc as makedepends now

Hi, makepkg --clean will fail on a cached builddir since pkg/mod is readonly. It will fail on the Cleaning up... step with rm: rm: cannot remove ... Permission denied. This is especially noticeable when using an aur helper like yay for building elvish-git.

@xiaq: I typically I define GOROOT, GOPATH, and GOBIN on all my machines, and in almost every case GOBIN is set to be $GOPATH/bin anyways. This is just a habit I got from working with Go in its early days, even though I think GOBIN is completely optional by now and GOROOT is optional if certain conditions are met (not built from source, installed as /usr/local/go etc). I didn't think of the fakeroot environment inheriting my environment variables, I'll setup a chroot and test building in that to see if that is the case. EDIT: just did a build inside a chroot and it worked just fine without editing, so is the fact that I explicitly set GOBIN, and that variable is inherited in the fakeroot environment.

@vendion Weird, since `go get .` is supposed to install the binary to $GOPATH/bin and normally you are not supposed to change $GOBIN to achieve that behavior. Do you have $GOBIN set in your exterior environment?

@vendion It builds the main executable for me. Are you still seeing this problem?

The latest change to the PKGBUILD only builds the elvish-stub executable, not the main executable. Moving the GOPATH export to the build function and defining GOBIN to be $GOPATH/bin then the main elvish executable gets built. See my modified PKGBUILD here
