I have to install texlive-plaingeneric in order to build.

guile 2.2 (2.2.7) is now in community. To compile Lilypond-devel with it change the PKGBUILD

depends=('gcc-libs' 'ghostscript' 'glibc' 'gsfonts' 'guile2.2')

build() {
  cd "$_pkgname-$pkgver"
  ./configure --prefix=/usr \
  make bytecode

guile3 support actually breaks the docs build so i disabled it for now, but i'll probably enable it once it works again. or maybe i'll make a separate -docs package

on the other hand, if the guile3 build causes more problems i might just make a guile2 package for lilypond-devel to depend on

I post below a patch that will make work lilypond with guile in version 3, as Arch Linux now has it in core repository. This patch also disables building documentation (just for me, I prefer to browse it online). If you would like to build it, just remove line "--disable-documentation \" from this patch.
