This package failed to build without termcap on my machine so I propose to add the dependency:

commit e4e6ce223f0e2b97419edc9197e23a94db2cddc9 (HEAD -> master)

    add termcap dependency.

@greut and @gavinbeatty, I don't actually use this program any longer, so I have disowned the AUR build. Please feel free to adopt it if you would like to maintain it.

gavinbeatty commented on 2020-10-25 17:42 (UTC)

arch=(any) implies the built package is architecture agnostic. But this is an executable built from C code, so for example, imgcat built on x86_64 will not run on i686.

arch=(i686 x86_64) would be more appropriate, or arch=(i686 x86_64 armv6h armv7h aarch64) if it also works on those arm architectures.

cimg seems to be missing from the build dependencies.
