Patch has been applied, compilation is successful.

There is currently an upstream issue causing jq-git to fail to compile. ( I will add a patch to fix this.

Would you mind adding jq to provides?

The man page doesn’t seem to build correcly. For me, «man jq» yields: > # To unbundle, run this file echo exec sed ’s/.//’ >exec > <<’//GO.SYSIN DD exec’ //GO.SYSIN DD exec echo rake sed ’s/.//’ > >rake <<’//GO.SYSIN DD rake’ //GO.SYSIN DD rake echo manpage sed > ’s/.//’ >manpage <<’//GO.SYSIN DD manpage’ //GO.SYSIN DD manpage

When building, the linker can't seem to find the oniguruma library, even though it's installed: CCLD jq /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lonig ./.libs/libjq.a(util.o): In function `get_home': util.c:(.text+0x448): warning: Using 'getpwuid' in statically linked applications requires at runtime the shared libraries from the glibc version used for linking collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status Makefile:825: recipe for target 'jq' failed make[1]: *** [jq] Error 1 Any ideas what might be going on there? It's definitely in my /usr/lib: % ldconfig -p | grep onig (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/ (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/

As @lilydjwg mentioned, please move oniguruma from makedepends to depends since it's needed to run.

Please use git describe --tags as tag jq-1.4 is a lightweight tag being ignored currently. See

lilydjwg commented on 2014-09-23 07:51 (UTC)

oniguruma is required to run.

FYI, jq 1.4 has been released.

My PKGBUILD works well. Please update it!

Package out of date, "jq" has moved to using autoconf/automake; the following gist will build: Alternately, comment out the patch in the build hook, and insert: aclocal automake --add-missing autoreconf ./configure --prefix=/usr

I humbly suggest changing line 37 replacing "../../$name-git.patch" with "$srcdir/$name-git.patch" to make it work with non-standard srcdir. Thank you.
