Yes, I've misunderstood. I assume the problem occurs when using the static library. Normally pkg-config should give you all the flags you need when invoking it with --static. However, that's not working for brotli because upstream decided to use different library names for static libraries. For CMake, I've been working around it (among other issues) with a special toolchain file:

I don't have mingw-w64-brotli-static installed. Your .BUILDINFO file and my pacman -Q looks almost the same. Not sure if my last message was clear, but this package builds just fine. I just can't link anything using it, like it used to do. I'll later try to change my project to link brotly manually, but that seems odd.

Strange, it works for me with brotli¹. Be sure not to have only mingw-w64-brotli-static installed. I could disable brotli for the sake of bootstrapping but I actually try to keep the difference between the bootstrapping package and the normal one to a minimum.

¹Check the .BUILDINFO file in for my build environment.

Hello, I use this package for a long time and decided to update it today. This error started happening when linking using freetype:

home/builder/.cache/yay/mingw-w64-freetype2-bootstrap/src/freetype-2.12.1/build-i686-w64-mingw32/../src/sfnt/sfwoff2.c:324: undefined reference to `BrotliDecoderDecompress'

Looks like brotli was introduced at 2021-08-27 and seems to be related to this error.

Using the version 2.10.4 of commit 864dd4f7925b, it works just fine.

I get the error:

@Hudd: This package is not out-of-date. It uses the same PGP key as the regular freetype2 package.

@dviktor Should be fixed now, I didn't sync this correctly with non-bootstrap version. Note that there is no reason to build this package once you have successfully built the regular version. It is just meant for bootstrapping in the first place.

As you can see I try to build harfbuzz exactly after freetype2-bootstrap installation but it throws an error about cyclic deps Seems like pacaur can't handle properly "Provides" field of freetype2-bootstrap during deps check... EDIT [viktor ~]$ yaourt -S mingw-w64-harfbuzz ... ==> WARNING: This PKGBUILD describes a split package. ==> Specific package options are unknown ==> mingw-w64-harfbuzz dependencies: - mingw-w64-configure (already installed) [makedepend] - mingw-w64-freetype2 (already installed) [makedepend] - mingw-w64-cairo (building from AUR) [makedepend] - mingw-w64-icu (building from AUR) [makedepend] - mingw-w64-graphite (building from AUR) [makedepend] ... Compilation now seems to work...

I don't use pacaur but I suspect its algorithm to resolve the build order might not be smart enough (eg. doesn't take provides into account). Just build the mingw-w64 packages in the following order: freetype2-bootstrap harfbuzz freetype2 qt5-base Or use my binary repo (at least for bootstrapping). BTW: mingw-w64-qt5-base is currently outdated (I will update to 5.7.1 soon)
