I've taken over the package and updated it to follow the VCS package guidelines.

Regarding the pkgver() function, it should work with something very similar to:

pkgver() { cd "$pkgname"; git describe --long --tags | sed 's/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g' ; }

Build fails:

src/library.cpp: In member function ‘QString Library::openBookFromPath(const QString&)’:
src/library.cpp:44:32: error: ‘class kiwix::Library’ has no member named ‘getBookByPath’; did you mean ‘getBookById’?
   44 |         auto& book = m_library.getBookByPath(zimPath.toStdString());

Since this is a VCS package building the current master branch, it needs to have a valid pkgver() function to distinguish builds of different commits, see the VCS package guidelines for example functions.
