@mjr Looks like the source was updated to Another option, just in case it becomes necessary: ImageMagick have bzip2 packages on their source mirrors (HTTPS and FTP!), as one of the ImageMagick delegate libraries.

@adsun It actually looks like the bzip2 homepage ( is now some kind of landing page. Not sure where to report this... Is there another trusted source for the source code?

EDIT: the tarball is on the Wayback Machine:

The checksums for the tarball have changed. Please update the checksums.

mingw-w64-cairo won't build without them though.

There are useless libtool (.la) files in arch/lib, please add !libtool option

Manually typed up some libtool files so other packages (fontconfig, sdl_ttf) wouldn't choke on this

This package is known to cause problems with libtool and linking DLLs, so I'm retracting my vote. I advise you guys not use this package unless you really need to.
