It looks like this git repository is 3 years old.
It has been forked though: and the latest forks seems to compile with no issues.
I successfully built this package just by replacing the repository path in order to use this one:

I had better luck with this one:
git clone git://

For the libirecovery dependency used:
git clone git://

Didn't bother with AUR packages, just installed dependency in /usr/local.

After all this ran into an error trying to restore iPod4,1_6.1.3 firmware
Writeup is here:

Does not compile. The and configure error out, Says it can not find Makefile thus "make" command gives error about no target.

I tried to regenerate the makefile and configure with -
aclocal autoconf autoheader automake --add-missing

and it works, and configure now have a usable makefile and make starts to compile. But then it spits out numerous "error: too few arguments to function", I commented the first errors function and about 10 more popped up.

Real pain in the ass. I finally got ibirecovery compiled and then this crap. Supposely irecovery supports up to ios 6 which is pretty impressive considering the code has not been updated in three years and no one seems to be able to compile it.

I think that it wont compile because the packages we use are to new to work with this old as dirt code.

To make it compile again, add this to src/

idevicerestore_LDADD = /usr/lib/libirecovery.a

This won't build anymore.
Also, libzip needs to be added to the depends array.
