This does not use the upstream repo at

I just looked at this more carefully. The problem is make is running commands out of order, so files don't exist when they're needed. The -j1 option is needed to force commands to be executed in order, so the file will exist when needed.

CPPFLAGS and CFLAGS are unnecessary. (Possibly in the past, they affected timing enough so the files would exist when needed.) They can be removed. Here is a build() function that should work.

build() {
  cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname%-git}"
  autoreconf -ivf
  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  make -j1

Just tested it exhaustively: The modifications proposed by @xiota change nothing. Package does not build.

I found a solution though, no changes to PKGBUILD necessary:

1) cd into repository folder 2) Run makepkg -si 3) Wait for error mv: cannot stat '': No such file or directory 4) Run makepkg -si again 5) Build succeeds

Would be cool if someone managed to fix the PKGBUILD, as I am not capable enough.

There is a definite typo in the PKGBUILD, and it does not build as is. Modifyng the PKGBUILD with the infpormation from below does result in a successful build

@xenhat Does modifying build() with the following help:

  CPPFLAGS="$CPPFLAGS -O2 -Wno-error"
  CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wno-error"
  ./configure --prefix=/usr

Doesn't seem to build for me, not even using extra-x86_64-build (from devtools).

Full build() output can be found ↗ here.

It might be an upstream error, if it occurs within make, if it is not a configuration error.

git:// seems to be broken, returning 404, one way to overcome this is to use git:// instead
