Please read the AUR wiki page before reporting issues.

In addition, if you are experiencing a build issue then ensure you have tried building without using an AUR helper (e.g. makepkg) and with a clean chroot (e.g. makechrootpkg).

There're several issues with 9a7fd63ac3:

  1. The patch command in prepare() may return 1 while applying existing patches, which result in "QUIET: unbound variable".

    Append "|| true" to the patch command

  2. set -u at the beginning of build() will clear CHOST inherit from /etc/makepkg.conf, which result in "CHOST: unbound variable"

    define CHOST same as in /etc/makepkg.conf after each 'set -u' in build()

I needed GCC 8 on a recent Arch installation, so I forward-ported the necessary fixes. Download PKGBUILD here:

All patches courtesy of our Gentoo friends, taken from

I deleted one patch that was already applied. Always useful to have an older compiler in case there is suspected mis-compilation. GCC 8.5 also still, and probably forever, the best compiler for small Atmel AVR projects.

@alexf91 disabling NLS is a workaround, but it's not a real solution and will cause build failures when compiling other programs with gcc8. It's a bit absurd that this hasn't been addressed in almost 6 months.

Disabling native language support fixes the build problems.

Edit PKGBUILD and add --disable-nls when the configure script is called.

Also getting the same error as @randomuser2

Anyone have any suggestions?

I fails to build on latest due to being linked with some system libs that are requiring latest libc (that is not present in gcc8 src)

See the relevant part of the log below.

I've read the wiki page, but I don't know how to resolve this.
