Need some fixes
1. in mpsse.c for Chinese module FT232
struct vid_pid supported_devices[] = { .. { 0x0403, 0x6001, "FT232H Future Technology Devices International, Ltd" }, ..
2. Remark //#include "mpsse.h" in all *.c files
3. In mpsse.h add static in unsigned static char fast_rw_buf[SPI_RW_SIZE + CMD_SIZE];
4. Change to prefix=/usr in Makefile
5. Use --disable-python if no needed Python or find solution to fix problem (im too lasy to it))

And after this manipulation it seemly works))

Should consider switching upstream: see the discussion at

Another patch that removes the need for libftdi-compat:

I can confirm comments by @sytabaresa (thanks!) and also that libftdi-compat dependency is missing, as pointed by @noEntry (thanks!).

Hello, the actual url for the source code is not valid. google code has changed the assets directories; the correct url is$pkgname/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz. And if you include --prefix=/usr in PKGBUILD (also see other comments), the package will be install correctly.

I can confirm that the package will be installed in /usr/local by default, which is not desired. Uffe, can you please include stereohead's patch in the sources (see comments)?

Just noticed that the lib will be installed in /usr/local. This directory is for manually installed software not for software that is provided by a package. This will also break ld, because the directory /usr/local/lib/ is not a default search location...

Installing extra/libftdi-compat solves the problem for me.
