For me building the package fails with HDF5 enabled, disabling it fixes the issue for me. (However this might not be an acceptable option for everyone). I guess it's just an issue of CMake not finding the library but I'm not exactly sure how to troubleshoot and fix the issue.

**Edit: ** By installing hdf5-cpp-fortran instead of hdf5 I was able to compile with hdf support enabled. However I wasn't able to do the build without octave installed.

Would not build without gsl, wxgtk, texlive-plainextra packages installed.

Please add Qt as a dependency or disable it in the PKGBUILD.

Also, there seems to be a problem with TeX in the moment, it fails with

Removing all documentation in the PKGBUILD resolves the problem.

Please add freeglut and python2-numpy to dependencies. Without them building fails.
