So, for right now I am going to upgrade the package based on the original package, but our in-house builds enable as many modules as possible... I am considering splitting the modules up into separate packages as the dependencies vary based on these... I will also like to add and maintain any dependencies therein that do not already exist in Arch or AUR. Any thoughts on this from the community?

Best wishes, good luck maintaining the package.

Considering this package was just orphaned, as a member of a group that continues to build this package on a regular basis for multiple architectures and Archlinux forks, I believe it is appropriate for our group to continue maintenance of this package. As such I have thus adopted this package and I look forward to working with the community for continued support.

I have triggered this package to become orphaned, so a new volunteer can adopt it and update it.

I found out after my post that the problem actually resides in in spandsp. It won't compile. You have to make changes to the BUILDPKG to get it to work. I've included my findings over in the spandsp project.

Looks like with v1.10.4, sofia-sip and spandsp are packaged separately.

SpanDSP and sofia-sip

Sofia-sip and SpanDSP dependencies have been removed from the FreeSWITCH™ tree since v1.10.4 Release (05 August 2020).

You can find source files of Sofia-sip here:

SpanDSP sources are here:

Packages for Sofia-sip and SpandDSP are available for all supported platforms from our packaging repos.

You might have to visit each directory, run ./ then ./configure then make install

Has anyone gotten this to work at all?

It seems to get stuck while installing spandsp-docs with error:

xsl:import : unable to load
make: *** [Makefile:489: t38_manual/index.html] Error 5

Is the version at different then the version listed in the Arch repo?

You should change dependency from libyuv-git to libyuv as this is in the official repository now.

@sanerb The modified versions of spandsp and sofia-sip required to build 1.10.4 are available at and, respectively. This is spandsp >= 1.99 (actually 3.0.0 apparently) and sofia-sip 1.13.0. The upstream issue at also mentions this, apparently posted at about the same time you commented, so I'm not certain if you had seen it at the time. Also note that issue has now been closed.

What's particularly odd is that its own spec file indicates the location of the source tar.gz file is but that returns a 404 error. Actually almost looks like they're doing subtle changes to certain (mostly distro-specific, i.e. Debian and RedHat) build files in preparation for release, although the actual source code itself doesn't seem to be in the process of being modified, and seems to build and function appropriately.

I ran into the same issue attempting to build this version for a client due to a bug in 1.10.2 and came across these repositories after a bit of hunting. It took looking at the spec and files of spandsp and sofia-sip to find it at the time, I suppose I should've mentioned some of this in the flag comment.

I'm afraid, if the versions of spandsp and sofia-sip already in the system may be required by other packages, these versions may need to be renamed so they do not collide, and either moved to separate directories in /usr/include and /usr/lib or set up as a package conflict.

@DesmondKM added, thanks!

@Korynkai 1.10.4 has some issues building. Namely, it doesn't like the system's spandsp, and they don't provide a copy of it:

checking for spandsp >= 1.99... configure: error: no usable spandsp; please install spandsp devel package or equivalent

Arch's spandsp is 0.0.6-3, so I have no idea where SignalWire is getting ">=1.99" from.

EDIT: Confirmed against upstream: So where are they getting "1.99" from? Looks like there's a GH issue as well:
