Sorry for that, my mistake. Nevertheless, it is already required by cmake.

I was just following the PKGBUILD file from the cgal package. Building qt
takes a lot of effort so I would suggest to set it as optional.

Thanks for your answer

- about the prepare section: just read what the PR does, you can always try to build without if you do not agree
- wine is a makedepend
- no need to add gmp: it is already pulled by mpfr
- I prefer to enable all possible features, that's why I require qt, eigen

I am able to build cgal now. I was using a previous version of mingw-w64-cmake that did not contain wine as a dependency.

I modified the mingw-w64-cgal PKGBUILD file. I made qt5-sgv and eigen as optional dependencies (they are needed depending on the packages you will use), and gmp as a dependency (it is required to link programs against cgal libraries). I also added #Maintainer and #Contributor as required by the Arch Linux packaging standard. The PKGBUILD file is here, if you are willing to use it:

Some other comments:
- I am not sure why the modification made on prepare() function are needed. They are not needed in the cgal (non mingw-w64) package.
- ¿Is it wine needed as a runtime dependency?

indeed, wine should be installed

I am getting an error while building cgal. It seems that cmake is not finding the mingw-w64 include files. Here is the complete error:
