@polyzen Thanks!
@sekret: There's an upstream issue trying to narrow this issue down; we haven't been able to consistently reproduce it:

Unfortunately the check fails for me when I try to build it in a clean chroot:
I don't know how to fix this, any help?

The build works though with "standard" makepkg.

Here's an updated patch removing the sphinxcontrib-newsfeed makedep, this time without adding errors:

Oh, that's great. Thank you for the explanation.

@polyzen: The files installed are not the same as the ones generated by setuptools; they're alternative versions which provide a very large speedup (by skipping on some very slow logic on setuptool's side). This should trim 1-2 seconds of startup time for this app.

See here[1] for further background.

In the latest commit, why add those install lines if the files already get installed with the appropriate permissions?

Also, IIUC, either `python build` should be removed or `--skip-build` should be added to `python install`.

sphinxcontrib.newsfeed is unnecessary for the man build [1][2].
This patch [3] removes this makedep, but causes Sphinx to output quite a few lines of errors. Perhaps that can just be forwarded to /dev/null.

@steinberg: That bug appears to be fixed in khal master.

vdirsyncer is properly installed on mine (I have it running through cronie to sync my calendars and it works fine). At the moment it fails in the simple_config_test:

No AUR helper beyond cower, which shouldn't count.

I managed to get it to build nonetheless; I had to uninstall most, if not all, of the python dependencies, as they had been in /usr/lib/python3.5 and reinstall them such that they were in the python 3.6 directory tree.

Thanks for the help!
