Looks like it is an upstream issue, liblas has no laszip 3 support yet.

Hi, it failed to build with laszip 3.2

No can do. lasmerge is long-gone. For 3.5 years now:

lasmerge is not included !
Please provide it

...until that happens, which may take who knows how long, I decided to publish 1.8.1 PKGBUILD with a patch for apps/CMakeLists.txt.

Alright! Thanks a bunch. Let's hope they'll release a fixed source code package soon.

Obviously the best way is to get this fixed by fixing the code, I was just giving a easy fix which gets you the same end result for now ;-)

Anyway, you're on the right track it seems. The minimal cmake version they're targeting is 2.6.0, so we might need to add some extra fixes for lower cmake versions as well. I'll see if I have some time later this week to come up with a proper fix for the pthread issue.

FYI, few days ago I suggested a solution to the problem in, inspired by

I'd rather avoid workarounds if the issue can be easily fixed upstream.

If anybody knows there's something wrong with apps/CMakeLists.txt modification I proposed please let me know. I'll be glad to learn from you.

Add export LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} -pthread" before the cmake command for 1.8.1 to compile.
