Update: issue fixed in the new version.

Build fails with the following message:

In file included from cxxsupport/
cxxsupport/ error: too many decimal points in number
  802 |       int v_header  = nearest<int>(1000.*CFITSIO_VERSION),

Cause: CFITSIO_VERSION is defined in /usr/include/fitsio.h as 4.0.0 . It has one too many decimal point indeed, and doesn't match the version healpix expects (3.48). Workaround: downgrading cfitsio package to 3.48.

The latest commit adds a dependency to the now fixed libsharp repository, so I believe that patch is no longer necessary. Many thanks to kmeagher for helping to debug this.

The new (bundled) libsharp wasn't built for me automatically when the cxx build is triggered, so I had to apply the following patch to PKGBUILD:
