With packer I only get an error:

/tmp/packertmp-1000/ksh.PKGBUILD: line 166: SOURCEONLY: unbound variable

With yaourt, I'm prompted for the license stuff.

The build is improved so the error and how to fix steps are more obvious.

that is by design, read the PKGBUILD.

On BSD I'm waiting for comment from David Korn and crew. If the BSD license doesn't apply to the parts we take then we wouldn't include the BSD license.

There's a lot of changes needed to switch over to /usr/bin/shell. As an example the zsh ArchWiki page references /bin/zsh.

BSD licences are concidered custom by arch therefor "TODO: Do we need to include BSD licenses?" yes. also if year is wrong is because is Custom licence.

I think we should use /usr/bin/ksh but the other except zsh shells show /bin

you are right, the shells in etc/shells are supposed to be /usr/bin/shell, the request are on demmand and if not break compatbility -Allan McRae on the bug repport that I filled once.

I get the exact same error as sputnick. I'm not using yaourt, just makepkg.

haawda commented on 2013-10-19 22:51

Builds fine here. sputnick, did you try without using yaourt?
