Reposting this comment with a GIST link for the PKGBUILD patch.

bidulock, this is my first comment, I haven't looked around yet has to how to get things submitted, thank you for your guidance.

I'm new to AUR, but I managed to get this package working again.

You'll need to grab the patch linked below and place it with all the other patches along side the PKGBUILD.

Next patch the PKGBUILD with this patch

After that rebuild the package and it should work.

Why not just do

yaourt -S pkgbuild-introspection

and upload the resulting source package using "Submit" at the top of the page. You can disown the package again once you upload it if you do not want to maintain it.

I get an error while building the package..

Okay, I think I would just have to recompile, but I get some deprecation warnings. Removing -Werror and fixing the problem mentioned below, I get:

src/mn-evolution-server.gob: In function ‘mn_evolution_server_lookup_folder’:
src/mn-evolution-server.gob:152:11: error: too few arguments to function ‘e_mail_session_new’

When I run it, I get:

mail-notification: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Seems to have started with the recent libsasl update (2.21.6-2, I got it 15th May), which now provides and not I'm not sure of the significance of that changed number, so I don't know if it's a libsasl packaging bug or a mail-notification issue.

tbmatuka commented on 2012-05-31 14:09

really ugly solution:
ln -s /usr/include/evolution-3.4/libemail-engine/* /usr/include/evolution-3.4/mail/
ln -s /usr/include/libsoup-2.4/libsoup/ /usr/include/evolution-data-server-3.4/
ln -s /usr/include/gconf/2/gconf/ /usr/include/evolution-data-server-3.4/

cleaning up after compiling:
ls -l /usr/include/evolution-3.4/mail/ | grep -E "^l" | cut -d" " -f11 | sed -r 's@^@/usr/include/evolution-3.4/mail/@' | xargs rm
rm /usr/include/evolution-data-server-3.4/{libsoup,gconf}

prettier solution would be to make another patch which will fix #include <mail/*> for those headers that are now in libemail-engine and add proper libsoup and gconf dirs to be searched for files to include.
