Could you also add the which package as a make dependency? uses which to determine whether libtoolize exists. However, not all shells provide which out of the box, so compilation fails on those which don't.

It provides libtoolize, which is required by (

I seem to have misplaced the notification for this. Much apologies. Hopefully the new version fixes your issue. :)

Hi new maintainer. My comment about clang below still stands. Please add --enable-clang-wrapper --enable-clang-rewrite-includes or a makedepend on clang. When building the package in a clean chroot, the auto detection of clang installed on the host doesn't work.

I missed the request to update this a few weeks back because my mail was down, and it seems someone wants to take it over, so it's good time to disown.

There is a bit of a problem: this package optionally depends, at build time, on clang):

The symlink for clang/clang++ in /usr/lib/icecream/libexec/icecc/ is only created if clang is installed. This is a problem when building the package in a minimal chroot (such as when using aurutils with the -c flag).

I would suggest making clang a build dependency and an optional run time dependency to make the build more reliable (as I don't believe always having the symlink would be a problem even if clang isn't installed).

You could also just pass --enable-clang-wrapper to configure, but reading through it looks like it also tries to auto detect if clang properly supports -frewrite-includes amongst other things. My first suggestion is likely simpler and more reliable with regards to future changes.

No, install base-devel.

Hi, please add automake (for aclocal and co.) as a depend.

Thank you for your maintainer work.

I'd suggest to move to pre-release 1.4rc1. I've build my own package and this solved many issues at my cluster, specially flush_writebuf() failed errors, which in turn slows down compile jobs.
