please update the PKGBUILD with the flags suggested by @Windfisch

Windfisch commented on 2022-06-06 23:24 (UTC)

The package does not build with recent compilers, since GCC has learned the -Wfree-nonheap-object warning. The software is doing some really bogus-looking pointer arithmetic right before free()ing the pointer; however, this only undoes even more bogus pointer arithmetic from before, so this should actually be fine.


CFLAGS='-Wno-error=free-nonheap-object' CXXFLAGS='-Wno-error=free-nonheap-object'

to the ./configure call in the PKGBUILD fixes compilation.

Can aarch64 be added to the supported architectures?

The error pointed by @mattf can be fixed by adding --disable-lang-indic to the ./configure command. Source:

@mattf Exactly the same...

Feel free to adopt the package. mimic-git too.

Working PKGBUILD as of now (valid checksum, added _pkgname):

# Maintainer: Andrew Stubbs <>
pkgdesc="Text-to-speech voice synthesis from the Mycroft project."
makedepends=('git' 'libtool' 'autoconf' 'automake' 'icu')

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

    # Temporary workaround for

check() {
    cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname-$pkgver"
    make -k check

package() {
    cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname-$pkgver"
    make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install
    install -D -m644 COPYING "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/LICENSE"

The BUILDDIR problem was discussed in mimic-git, but indeed I can't reproduce it now, not even with yaourt.

Script updated.

Also, whatever you are trying to accomplish with unset BUILDDIR, you are not doing it properly. BUILDDIR is a valid makepkg variable and being set does not interfere with the build of this package.
