I got the following error when installing package after build.

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
eviacam: /usr/local/share/man exists in filesystem

In order to be able to build this package, I had to use "--with-wx-config=/usr/bin/wx-config-2.8" in the ./configure line, otherwise the package tries to build with wxgtk which is version 3 now, and it fails.

Of course, wxgtk2.8 needs to be added as a depends and wxgtk removed.

Also, the patches could be updated (they don't fail, but they have fuzziness).

SanskritFritz thanks to your modifications. I was not aware of new behaviour of pacman.

That is because this PKGBUILD is using deprecated methods prior to pacman 4.1. Use this one instead:
