twilk, fixed, thank you for heads-up.
That line was there for a very long time, and it always worked for me, so it is strange to see it fail. And also strange that no one noticed it until now.

After the update, I get an error when building this package. The error is that too many arguments are passed to the cd call in package(). I solved it by changing line 35 in the PKGBUILD from "cd $srcdir/gcc-*" to "cd $srcdir/gcc-*/".

The added slash at the end means that the glob only matches $srcdir/gcc-arm-none-eabi-6_2-2016q4/ and not $srcdir/gcc-arm-none-eabi-6_2-2016q4-20161216-linux.tar.bz2.

No problem, thanks for the quick fix!

This doesn't build for me. I get an error saying that "source should be an array". It was an easy fix.

The only part that needs curses is GDB, so the easiest fix is to remove GDB from
this package. Otherwise it's a good toolchain, and GDB from community will work
fine with it. If no one has any objections I'll take the package.

This is not a lib32 issue but a ncurse issue.

I think the lib32 dependency comes from the fact the source package here is a prebuild version.

I struggled a little to build from source, following how-to-build-toolchain.pdf on

$ ./ --skip_steps=mingw32,manual

But it required another package from AUR: isl

The build failed at the very end while packaging, but fortunately the gcc-arm-none-eabi-4_9-2015q4-20151024-linux.tar.bz2 was there (I just moved it close to the PKGBUILD that I tweaked for using it).

I'm going to disown this package since I use community/arm-none-eabi-gcc and friends these days.

Someone might considering building the toolchain from source as I hate the libc32 dependencies that this package is built against and causes problems like the ncurses issue.

I tried to recompile ncurses from ABS --with-abi-version=5 but bash, gptfdisk, readline require ABI 6. I am afraid that we cannot use this binary compiler until upstream upgrades too.

I have a libncurses error. Version is now

$ arm-none-eabi-gdb
arm-none-eabi-gdb: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
