There should be a single makefile for building f2c, please submit a bug report and/or patch to dmg@acm.org. The email address was found at the bottom of this file: http://www.netlib.org/f2c/README

I'll ping you on IRC several times as well, like you did, just to make sure you got the message. Thanks!

The new webpage for f2c seems to be here: http://www.netlib.org/f2c/index.html
Please update the package.

makedepends=('gcc') should be removed, as gcc is in base-devel and every AUR user is expected to install base-devel first. Please remove it. See also: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#makedepends

About the quoting, the main thing is that the package compiles. Some prefer "${X}", some prefer $x. The consensus for Arch Linux seems to be that as long as variables that may have strings with spaces work correctly, and the package builds, it's fine. It's a controversial topic that TUs and Devs can't seem to agree on and have little reason to try to force a consensus.

Thanks for adopting, good luck with maintaining it further.

Disowned the package so you can adopt it, if you want. I suspect that you care more about this package than I do. :)

This fixes all the issues I just mentioned, and doesn't even break anything else:

I also noticed a license file that should be included with the software. I'm putting together a PKGBUILD based on your latest version that corrects all these issues, and will post it soon.

There's also a typo on line 19, where you use "+=" instead of "=".
