This new PKGBUILD is a work in progress. If you find bugs, please let me know ASAP.

please change the line: if [[ BRANCH = "emacs-26" ]]; then

to: if [[ $BRANCH = "emacs-26" ]]; then

In _conf+=( '--with-x-toolkit=no' 'without-toolkit-scrollbars' '--with-xft' '--without-xaw3d' );, without-toolkit-scrollbars should be changed to --without-toolkit-scroll-bars. It can also be removed altogether, as it should have no effect (as there is no toolkit in the first place).

Also, [[ $LTO = "yes" ]] should be changed to [[ $LTO = "YES" ]] in

if [[ $LTO = "yes" ]]; then
  export CFLAGS+=" -flto"
  export tXXFLAGS+=" -flto"

Thanks for the updates, but the quotes between the two packages in 'dbus hicolor-icon-theme' are still missing for the $LUCID case.

aminb commented on 2018-06-11 15:20

Indeed, 'high-color-icon-theme' should be 'hicolor-icon-theme', and 'libfixes' should be 'libxfixes'.

rompy commented on 2018-06-11 07:06

The depends lines where it contains 'dbus high-color-icon-theme' should be 'dbus' 'hicolor-icon-themes' (for LUCID and NOKIT options).

Else, an error occurs:

==> ERROR: depends contains invalid characters: ' '

Also, libfixes is no longer available in repository.

blaenk, works for me. Make sure you have the latest version of the PKGBUILD and then uninstall completely (pacman -Rscn) and install again.

Not sure if it's a bug, but I'm getting this:

==> WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir

pkgver() also failed here with error:

ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to contain colons, hyphens or whitespace.

I used the following instead (thanks @CjK for the link):

pkgver() {
  cd "$pkgname"
  ( set -o pipefail
    git describe --long 2>/dev/null | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g' ||
    printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

Thanks @vorbote for your work on this. I was able to build the latest emacs-26 with this pkgbuild.

However, the pkgver() function didn't work for me. I replaced it with something sane from and then it worked flawlessly.

OK. It seems there is some corruption in config files after adjusting the detection of libpng in autoconf. Quick fix: Run "make distclean" on the cached sources. Real fix: Delete the src directory.
