@aramus I got the same error. The file /usr/lib/ does exist (without the /local part), which convinces me that some path is incorrect / need patching in either the PKGBUILD or the source.

Edit1: by running ./configure --prefix=/usr manually, I see the following line of interest:

checking zstd library directory... /usr/local/lib

Somehow it believes that zstd is there. Still investigating.

Edit2: Running pkg-config --libs libzstd gives this:

-L/usr/local/lib -lzstd

This doesn't look right.

Edit3: The same content is shown on /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libzstd.pc. This seems to be a zstd packaging or upstream bug.

Edit4: Compiling zstd manually, will report back when done.

Edit final: this bug was already filed here [], and according to CSalve, this package is probably waiting for a new release for the fix to take effect.

For now, the work-around solution is probably to rebuild zstd version 1.5.1-*, replacing the plain make as make PREFIX=/usr. This at least ensures that the prefix is correct.
