If you want to build (today-ish) with the latest imagemagick it will fail but you can patch it via this diff from kxstitch.

if you download ^ and name "imagemagick.patch" into the PKGBUILD folder you can update the PKGBUILD with this patch/diff

I had to install python to successfully build and install the package

Package does not install for me with error: '/bin exists in filesystem'

What I found is that `kf5-config` not exists in my system. I can't find package that contains this utility, but I found man page that says "kf5-config is mostly a deprecated replacement for kde4-config, while the recommended tool to use instead is qtpaths".

So I replace :
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kf5-config --prefix`
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`qtpaths --install-prefix`

After that, kxstitch was successfully installed on my system.
qtpaths is in qt5-tools, so I think it should be in makedepends

@roflincopter :
Thank you for your contribution.
I updated the package, using the stable version (not git-development version), and changed kdebase-runtime dependency into plasma-framework, because kxstitch-2.0.0 is for kf5, and kxstitch-1.3.0 was for kde4.
Also changed :
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kf5-config --prefix`

I flagged this out of date and started building the new version as a package. It successfully links now, I also stripped most of the build statements that apparently aren't needed anymore.

@ozone89 :
it is a bug in Cmake, due to a recent update of Cmake.
I found a workaround, with help of the developer of kxstitch.
Now, kxstitch does build well.
