I have error with gcc 7.2.0.

Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build freefilesync. ==> Restart building freefilesync ? [y/N] ==> -------------------------------------

Any solution?

I agree with @severach though, users should add this flag themselves in /etc/makepkg.conf if they want faster compilation. However I think the opposite could make sense, i.e. forcing "-j1" if the project fails to build with multi-threaded compilation.

Thanks for the updates :)

My apologies for the delay but I have updated the package to 9.6. I'm not 100% sure if I have used that MAKEFLAG correctly, so any corrections are very welcome! :)

Add that to your /etc/makepkg.conf and it will apply to all packages. I don't use it because I can't find a make flag that tells make to nice itself.

Can you please add MAKEFLAGS flag to speed up the compiling.

Updated to 9.5. :) Sorry for the delay.

@symen Thanks for that tip! I didn't know about that work-around. I have updated accordingly. As before, feel free to email me with any issues.

I noticed you set the source url to a file you host yourself. I know the original host returns 403 errors when using curl, but it seems to work fine when modifying the user agent.
In practice this can be done by overriding the DLAGENTS variable to add the "-A Mozilla" parameter:
'https::/usr/bin/curl -fLC - --retry 3 --retry-delay 3 -A Mozilla -o %o %u'
This is an ugly but valid solution according to the wiki, and it is sometimes used in official packages:

Wouldn't it be better then to use this hack instead of a custom host?
Thanks for maintaining the package by the way, I often use freefilesync so I much prefer a native package than the docker container hack I resorted to use. :)

@alexmo82 Thanks for letting me help! ^_^

Just updated to 9.4. My apologies for the slight delay. I've been bedridden with flu for the past few days and haven't been online.

This was my first time submitting a PKGBUILD, as well as my first time using both git and ssh, so please don't hesitate to email me if there are any problems.
