autoconf.h and rustc_cfg get deleted because of a typo in the bundled dkms.conf (line #4), it should be M= instead of M+

You should not use this if you are running a current kernel. I only have this package up because I know it is used in some arm boards that are stuck in pre 5.15 kernels.

For some reason trying to build this deletes autoconf.h and rustc_cfg, breaking itself and all future dkms builds. Yet another reason not to use this package.

To fix:

sudo pacman -R hid-nintendo-dkms
sudo pacman -S linux-headers # reinstall

Just a heads up, it looks like hid-nintendo finally made it into the 5.16 kernel (or at least the official linux package), so this package shouldn't be necessary for people using the regular Arch kernel anymore

Please keep in mind that Manjaro Is Not Arch — the AUR is specifically for Arch Linux and if you are using it with a non-Arch or Arch-derived distribution there is no guarantee of support. If you are having problems using AUR packages outside of Arch, reach out to your distribution's support channels.

That being said...

You need the headers package for your running kernel. You are running a Manjaro kernel, you need the associated Manjaro headers package; in your case, that's probably linux512-headers.

For some reason can't build against 5.12.19-1 kernel on Manjaro despite having the linux-headers while the error suggests I run the make oldconfig stuff it doesn't actually work, because it's got nothing to work with.

ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid.
         include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing.
         Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.

make: *** [Makefile:719: include/config/auto.conf] Error 1

As already noted in the 'flagged out of date' note, please update the package to version 3.2. The only change necessary is bumping the version number in the PKGBUILD.

I see. My bad then. Thanks for the clarification.

Yes, this behaviour is by design and Arch does in fact expect you to review the logs of every package installation and upgrade to make sure there are no warnings or errors.
