I think they should be discarded, its not obvious why a font configuration tool would be used otherwise than a lib.

Sometimes the executables are useful so I generally prefer keeping them. The change to keep the exe was also made on purpose by the previous maintainer: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=mingw-w64-fontconfig&id=446b3e7b5844e90c56cb4d2cd3556e70ed4ead7c

hello, the bin/*.exe should be removed

Hi. It fails to build on latest Manjaro with unsatisfied dependency:

Package dependency requirement 'freetype2 >= 21.0.15' could not be satisfied.

But compiles normally after commenting dependency check in configure.ac

hello,

small issue: it installs invalid symlinks to the build dir:
$ ls /usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/etc/fonts/conf.d/90-synthetic.conf -l
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 143 Jun 11 09:31 /usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/etc/fonts/conf.d/90-synthetic.conf -> /tmp/yaourt-tmp-xantares/aur-mingw-w64-fontconfig/pkg/mingw-w64-fontconfig/usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/90-synthetic.conf

maybe due to 0001-fix-config-linking.all.patch ?

Seems like something Mono-related. Do you have your environment set to recognise EXEs as Mono executables?

I have got the following compile error:

Are you sure that 0001-fix-config-linking.all.patch does what it’s supposed to do? For me it causes lots of symlinks to point inside the build directory, which it should definitely *not* do. And TBH I’m not exactly sure whether I get the purpose of the pkg-config patch either… I fail to see what it’s supposed to accomplish, and the build seems to work just fine without it (probably thanks to mingw-w64-pkg-config). Maybe the bugs these patches were supposed to fix vanished in an update? It’d be great if you could enlighten me about that.

I've got the following errors:
"configure: error: Package requirements (freetype2) were not met:
Package 'bzip2', required by 'freetype2', not found"
"configure: error: Package requirements (freetype2) were not met:
Package 'harfbuzz', required by 'freetype2', not found"

After reading the errors again, I think the dependencies should be added to mingw-w64-freetype2 and not to this package. However I'm wondering why I was able to build mingw-w64-freetype2 in the first place.

Schala commented on 2015-11-01 07:33

I didn't know it had those? I'm looking at native package and it has expat and freetype2
