hero: I agree.

Because llpp does not use the versioned mupdf library it most of the time does not compile, because it uses features that are added only in the git mupdf version. Now mupdf has been updated recently and it is now the beginning of a period of time, where llpp-git compiles against the mupdf library shipped in Arch. So I suggest to update the pgkver, in order to cause an update with the AUR helpers now that it is possible again to compile llpp on Arch with the shipped libraries. The PKGBUILD seems to still work, so there should nothing else need to be done other than to update the pkgver. The pkgver I got after just updating llpp-git was the following "26b.r58.gc654792".

Original source looks like modified with this commit in mupdf,;a=commitdiff;h=626ea2ea771735492c9a4350ae02b26ea09d1423, but Arch's mupdf is still version 1.11 released in April this year.
I think this is the cause of the compile error.

libmupdf version 1.11 just came out. With that version the current head compiles again. This is what I did to make it compile: I do not know if other modifications make it even better, but it might be a starting point for you to update the package.

Here is an updated PKGBUILD:

It contains new dependencies and optional dependencies, modifications to avoid build errors, and new packaging instructions.

A note about (optional) dependencies: file, gzip, and bzip2 are members of the base group, which is assumed to be installed on all Arch Linux systems, so these packages shouldn't be listed in the *depends arrays:

The newest llpp revisions seem to be incompatible with the current mupdf library. The llpp package does still work.

Build fails, I guess mupdf package removed include files?

Hi drrossum - Thanks for getting back to me. I agree with you about the haskell dependency, no need to include while not necessary.

I tried the package build and it works if mupdf-git is installed, and it does not when mupdf is installed instead. I think this is expected till the maintainer of mupdf release a new version.

Thanks for the help. Hopefully other people interested in llpp-git will be able to do it now.
