I went through the project history. The version was increased when upstream switched from cmake to autotools [1]. Since then they only fixed compiler warnings except [2] which *might* introduce an API change but the commit log says the function was only used internally. For now it should be safe to fix this with a simple symlink. We only need a better solution (maybe a AUR package that compiles the last commit before an API change and installs as if the API changes before version 1.11 is released.

I have symlinked -> locally and it works, but this is a dirty hack. The problem is unsolvable from here: we're just tracking the upstream.

Same thing here, migerh. With upowerd not starting up, GDM also doesn't come up.
I reverted to the rep versions of libplist, libimobiledevice, etc.

Symlinking really is a bad idea™, library versioning is there for a reason.

When I've got spare time, I'll compile upowerd from source, see if that works.

The latest version of libplist-git stopped providing which is required by /usr/lib/upower/upowerd (upower in [extra]). upowerd is started by dbus but because it fails dbus apparently waits and retries. This takes a lot of time: boot time is now ~90s instead of ~10s before. Adding a symlink /usr/lib/ -> /usr/lib/ at least speeds up the boot process back to 10s max but doesn't sound like a very good idea.

Any advice?

Updated to reflect cmake -> autotools transition by upstream.
