I have updated the PKGBUILD so that the source file is stored in the AUR also.

Homepage 404 but the download still works. Could you update it?

Updated PKGBUILD to include the fixes to produce a functional build in a single patch file I created with the help of other users here and also from the gentoo forums to fix the "ftoutln.h: file or directory not found" error.

using blacxun's edits, plus a the header-tweaks allows this to compile; similar header-fix for fbsplash (have just installed both, about to test it out on ARCH_2014.04 and current updates) - test fbtruetype works great (via): fbtruetype -f /path/to/ttf "text to display" sed -i "s/sbin/bin/g" fbtruetype/Makefile sed -i "26d;31d;55,57d;61d" fbtruetype/Makefile sed -i "s/fbtruetype.static//g" fbtruetype/Makefile sed -i "60s/sbin/bin/g" fbtruetype/Makefile sed -i "s@\(#include <\)freetype/\(ftoutln.h>\)@\1\2@g" fbtruetype/ttf.c sed -i "s@\(#include <\)freetype/\(ttnameid.h>\)@\1\2@g" fbtruetype/ttf.c

I fixed some of the errors I was having with this package: I don't have everything working, the splash goes black prematurely after a couple second, and it sometimes spits out some error like " needs to installed for pthread_cancel to work". I changed the #includes to use freetype2/* and, as IooNag said, freetype no longer ships with a static library, so I removed it from the fbtruetype Makefile. I hope someone out there benefits from this, even though it's a little dodgy.

I'm disowning this package because I no longer use fbsplash and the related packages and currently do not have the time to set up a test machine to help maintain the package. If there's anyone out there that wants to maintain these packages, it would be greatly appreciated :).
