I threw together a patch to account for the changes to the build process in the repo and the 5.4 discrepancy. These edits allowed me to install fennel-git again without any issues so I figured it might save you some busywork.

I also remember in earlier versions of the PKGBUILD, you had a comment about switching to git describe for pkgver once we had tagged releases in Fennel. We do have that now, so if you wanted to you could update that function to use printf "%s" "$(git describe --long | sed 's/\([^-]*-\)g/r\1/;s/-/./g')", which currently output s 0.5.0.r4.a39c4d0.

Here's the patch:

to src/fennel/friend.fnl, which is sourced and embedded into fennel.lua
when building.

Arch also now points the `lua` package to lua 5.4, so also updated the
`_lua_version` env var so fennel.lua ends up in the appropriate
directory (though fennel.lua and fennelview.lua should work with all of
