It appears the ghostscript source has been moved to a new subdirectory. The correct URL is now: http://downloads.ghostscript.com/public/old-gs-releases/ghostscript-9.18.tar.bz2

Updated to gsdjvu 1.9 and ghostscript to 9.18

That bug refers to djvulibre (https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/djvulibre/) not gdjvu. And it works for me with the current djvulibre and gsdjvu without any fixes:

Please update the ghostscript version in the PKGBUILD. Doing that solved this bug for me: https://sourceforge.net/p/djvu/bugs/272/

@lzlarryli fixed

There seems to be some problem in the PKGBUILD. When I run it, it says:

==> ERROR: Missing package() function in ........../PKGBUILD

@Jesin: On the contrary, we want to link to the installed libpng12 which includes headers (developement files). Why would we want to statically compile and include it in our binaries instead of sharing the same binary code with other software? And the part about "This usually is better because the resulting program benefits from the latest installed versions (including bug fix and security patches.)" refers to doing it this way, we do it the way the README recommends!

The README file states:
" If you do not provide any of the last three files,
jpegsrc, libpng and zlib, the building script will
attempt to use the system wide libraries.
This only works if the corresponding development files
are installed on your system. This usually is better
because the resulting program benefits from the latest
installed versions (including bug fix and security patches.)"
So I do not think you should include a dependency on libpng12.

Updated to 1.5 and added some dependencies on libpng12 and zlib (as per README included in the sources)

ghostscript 8.71-3 is available.

Not possible to remove the hacky ghoscript here and use that one instead?
