Here is a slightly updated PKGBUILD. In particular it builds the docs, makes use of $(nproc), and copies over the Emacs gforth.el file to where it should be.

@keenerd, do you still maintain this package?

Hi, could we get an update on this please? Otherwise please, consider marking it as orphaned.

Hello, here is an updated PKGBUILD with version bump and a number of fixes:

Ah, I didn't know that; sorry.

keenerd commented on 2013-01-09 04:28 (UTC)

Sorry, but no. m4 is part of base-devel and we don't ever include those as makedeps.

srl commented on 2012-12-28 22:16 (UTC)

Also requires m4 to build - please add.

Confirmed successful build on the Raspberry Pi. armv6h can be added to PKGBUILD's "arch" variable.

Phantasus, huge thank you! That fixes all the crazy bootstrap errors.

Please fix the line in PKGBUILD: ./configure --prefix=/usr TO: CFLAGS='-std=gnu99' ./configure Thanks, else it doesn't compile on my machine with gcc-4.7.0

Please fix the typo in the description: 'portabuule'.

Some progress on chasing down the error. It looks like it is related to a toolchain update (works fine on an out of date Arch install). Specifically, a number of C files for the bootstrap forth engine are mis-generated. The error looks like all files had their newlines replaced with '}' characters. Files affected include engine/{costs,prim_grp,prim_lab,prim_name,prim_num,superend,profile,super2}-fast.i

Adopted and trying to fix.

Orphaning, does not build.

haawda commented on 2011-04-03 11:24 (UTC)

Added -j1 to the make call as suggested.

commented on 2010-04-19 12:47 (UTC)

use "make -j1" instead of just "make" could prevent some bizarrd problems.
