Here is a working PKGBUILD for version 9.0

do what "xxarch commented on 2017-01-13 11:47"

Please find below some modifications to the PKGBUILD that allows to build version FreeFileSync_8.8. The Download of the sources from the official repository fails unless you create a .curlrc file in your home directory with the follwing content:
user-agent = ""

told, than you can download via

Well, you can still access the download via as you would for 8.10, but it only redirects to a downloadable file with a "proper" user agent and does this over three URLs. The final URL is a seemingly temporary download URL from mediafire, which means it can't be re-used.

Run `curl -I -A "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:10.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0" -L` to test. The best solution I can come up with is to fetch the source file with curl in prepare(), since I don't know whether makepkg can be instructed to send a user agent and follow redirects.

It looks like ffs 8.10 bundles its own zenxml version, so the "" source isn't needed anymore (and in fact makes the build fail). After I removed that, I was able to successfully build it using this PKGBUILD.

I was unable to find an archive download of the 8.9 source though.

@ keepitsimpleengr
is there any specific reason you use wxgtk-trenchbroom and not wxgtk from the official repo? This seems to be your problem

Alas... .. .
