"Perhaps it would be better to patch gprbuild to change the path it uses?" ... a better option, yes.

In fact, the gcc/gnat/gprbuild and gnat_util (which requires full gcc-ada rebuild) is, err, tricky, to sort out. There are also later issues with gdb not recognising Ada exceptions (such as Constraint_Error) when you want to set break point on a given exception, perhaps due to the gcc/gnat runtime not being built with debug symbols attached (i guess).

I, err, sort of inherited this job (so am glad of any help/advice).

I will try it locally, of course.

Installing that package works, though it is imperfect.

Perhaps it would be better to patch gprbuild to change the path it uses? I haven't looked at how difficult that would be.

I guess PKGBUILD depends settings musyt need attention ... will look properly tomorrow.

Sorry for inconvenience.

Have you installed the 'prepare_gnat_util' package ? (It should provide the libgnat-5.3.0 link).

As you say, hackish ... any advice welcome.

ids1024 commented on 2016-02-01 04:54

@charlie5 It shows "gcc (GCC) 5.3.0"

The library seems to be named /usr/lib/ rather than /usr/lib/ like it is looking for. A symlink makes it compile, but that is a hack.

Hi ids1024,

What does this show ?

$ gcc --version

Trying to use gprbuild, I am getting the error "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgnat-5.3"

Source URL is now updated.

It seems several of the Adacore packages source URL's have changed. The other packages should be updated now also.

Thanks! It helps.

Changing the source url of gprbuild to should fix it.
