@SysGhost : there have been no changes to the upstream fprintd package in the meantime, with last changes being made on 18 November 2018 (https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/log/trunk?h=packages/fprintd), which is before this package was even created.

I cannot reproduce the error, which is due to gtkdocize missing on your system. This is weird, since the gtkdocize program is available in the gtk-doc package, which is listed as a make dependency and thus must be installed if you want to build this package.

Removing out-of-date flag.

PKGBUILD file need changes according to upstream changes.

Cloning into 'fprintd'... done. Switched to a new branch 'makepkg' ==> Starting prepare()... patching file data/fprintd.service.in ~/.cache/pacaur/fprintd-vfs_proprietary/src/fprintd ~/.cache/pacaur/fprintd-vfs_proprietary/src/fprintd Copying file po/Makefile.in.in

Please add the files codeset.m4 gettext.m4 glibc21.m4 iconv.m4 isc-posix.m4 lcmessage.m4 progtest.m4 from the /usr/share/aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory or directly to your aclocal.m4 file. You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/config/.

@cheeseypi : Sorry, can't reproduce. The errors look really weird, though - Arch doesn't have x86_64-linux-gnu subfolders in its /usr/lib. Something like that is done by Debian AFAIR, so perhaps the configure script somehow was led into thinking it's running on Debian? Or maybe a third-party package modified some pkg-config files which describe the build flags and library files used by ImageMagick? I really have no idea.

Getting error on build:

/usr/bin/grep: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libMagickCore-6.Q16.la: No such file or directory

/usr/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libMagickCore-6.Q16.la: No such file or directory

libtool: error: '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libMagickCore-6.Q16.la' is not a valid libtool archive

What can I do to fix this? Is there an unlisted dependency or something? I have extra/libmagick6 and extra/libmagick installed.

UPDATE May 3rd: I was able to "solve" this issue by building the package in a docker container and installing the result. Still don't know what went wrong.
