Could you force-disable LTO in the PKGBUILD?

I was trying to build edencommon and watchman with makechrootpkg (through aurutils) and LTO is enabled by the default configuration in devtools (from what I can tell).

By adding the following line, building those packages works even when LTO is globally enabled in makepkg.conf.

Due to, the update of the AUR package will be paused until build can success.

It would be great if you can update this package to the latest release. I found the latest release fixes the build problem identified by jghodd 1 month ago.

another build error with the latest release:

had to fix this by adding a hard cast of (google::logging_fail_func_t) to line 79 of Init.cpp:

thus far, it seems that hard coding the path into FindLibDwarf.cmake is working, but should not be the real solution.

./CMake/FindLibDwarf.cmake:  set(LIBDWARF_INCLUDE_DIRS "/usr/include/libdwarf/libdwarf-0")

the issue is that DW_SECT_INFO, DW_SECT_ABBREV and DW_SECT_STR_OFFSETS are only defined in /usr/include/libdwarf/libdwarf-0/dwarf.h

as far as I can tell, the cmake FindLibDwarf.cmake is finding the wrong path to dwarf.h - there are multiples:


the one we want is /usr/include/libdwarf/libdwarf-0/dwarf.h

There are different pkgrel in .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD:

This causes yay to reinstall folly on every update.

Eremiell commented on 2021-06-27 18:59 (UTC)

Some new depends or possibly optdepends seem to be libaio, libunwind, libdwarf, and liburing.

getting a build error with fizz and wangle related to folly

CMake Error in CMakeLists.txt: Imported target "Folly::folly" includes non-existent path


in its INTERFACE_INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES. Possible reasons include:

  • The path was deleted, renamed, or moved to another location.

  • An install or uninstall procedure did not complete successfully.

  • The installation package was faulty and references files it does not provide.
