I have successfully worked around the FindFreetype2.cmake bug by removing the 0001-add-subpath-for-freetype.patch and prepare() from the PKGBUILD. Note that freetype2 still has to be installed.

I have also contacted the package mantainer (manolis) regarding the issue.

On the bright side the package is now working properly with pacaur, it doesn't want to update it every time. Thank you for the fix! The installed version is r133.7b6b996-1 however, not r128.e1eb11b-1 as in the package description above...

For me it fails with:

==> Extracting sources...
-> Creating working copy of gr-fosphor git repo...
Reset branch 'makepkg'
==> Starting prepare()...
can't find file to patch at input line 5
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

File to patch:

I have latest freetype2 (2.6.3-1) installed.

Pacaur is going to re-build this package unless you define a PKGDEST in makepkg.conf. It's a pacaur fault, there is no need to update this PKGBUILD every time a new commit is made upstream.

EDIT: you can use this in pkgver():
printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"
to get something like this:

Same problem here.
The reason the package pulls and builds the latest git commit (e1eb11b) but expects an older commit (4ae2f53) to be the latest one.

There is something wrong with this package as my AUR helper pacaur wants to update the gr-fosphor-git package every time it is invoked with -Syu (it shows the installed git commit vs. "latest" version).

This should be fixed. Not sure if this is the best way to go. Feel free to sugest better fix.

Build fails.

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:109 (message):
freetype2 required to compile gr-fosphor
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Even if I install freetype2... I don't know why...
