Can you shallow clone emacs? It takes so long otherwise.

This is how to do it

comment out source and md5sums and replace prepare function:

prepare() {
cd "$srcdir"
git clone --depth=1 $pkgname
cd "$pkgname"

[[ -x configure ]] || ( ./ git && ./ autoconf )

@nochiel I examined the configuration options and I have come up with a solution. I'm uploading a new PKGBUILD in a bit.

@palopezv Got it. Thanks.

@nochiel, as you will notice, m17n-libs support is disabled by default; I don't need it so... But you can enable it in the PKGBUILD.

vorbote commented on 2017-06-28 14:17

@nochiel, it is pulled in indirectly by m17n-libs. Has that changed?

nochiel commented on 2017-06-28 14:16

Should libotf be listed as a dependency?

Please note that cairo support is *very* experimental. Font corruption will happen sooner or later. If you want the latest and greatest, stick to webkit2gtk support.

So, the problem seems related to harfbuzz and infinality. In my case I removed infinality as per:

pacman -S --asdeps freetype2 cairo fontconfig

Others reported that rebuilding harfbuzz against infinality worked for them.

The test that was failing was testing building against GTK3 and failed: undefined reference to `FT_Get_Var_Blend_Coordinates'

Kinda at a loss here.

Trying to install emacs-git and I eventually get:

configure: error: Gtk+ wanted, but it does not compile, see config.log. Maybe some x11-devel files missing?
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build emacs-git.
==> Restart building emacs-git ? [y/N]
==> ----------------------------------

I figured this was some sort of temporary problem, but it has been giving me this result for a couple of weeks now.

The end of the config.log looks like:

#define HAVE_RSVG 1
#define HAVE_GTK3 1

configure: exit 1
