This package is out of date, the current version of libnds is 1.7.1.

Well there is a 'default_arm7'[1] package, so I think this package should actually (opt)depend on that. Unfortunately the maintainer does not update it (I flagged it 2 months ago).
I have actually no experience with NDS homebrew, only updated the whole devkitpro stuff that was available on the AUR. I will try to get in touch and get it fixed soon.

When compiling any of the examples I was getting an error like:
'Cannot find /opt/devkitpro/default.elf'

So the solution was to download the default ARM7 binary here[0],
extract and copy to `$DEVKITPRO/libnds/`

There is a problem with the newest release, when you go to build anything, the compiler throws an error saying libnds9.a is incompatible. This can be fixed by adding "!strip" to the options field in the PKGBUILD. Also, 1.5.2 has been released.

Okay, sorry about that, I totally forgot about it. I updated to version 1.5.1 so it should be fine now.
