Hi, the problem is, that Montage use included freetype library. So let it use system library and it will compile and run without errors. Patch and update PKGBUILD is here:

Hi, I'm probably too late to help, but just in case... That `FT_Get_Var_Blend_Coordinates' message could be shown due to infinality-patched libraries. As these infinality libraries are no longer maintained, you probably want to remove them. A nice write-up on how to get rid them is here:

Do you also have harfbuzz installed?

Still getting error like @Universebenzene

I see -- it appears to be caused by the library freetype which is included *locally* by montage in the lib subfolder. I would guess that a patch would be required to build the local freetype without harfbuzz support. It is unclear to me what the fonts contained in data are for. They are not mentioned in the documentation from what I can see. I have not had issues but I do not use all montage features. The only man files that I see after build are for the libraries that montage has included with source for build. They are not documentation for montage and are therefore not installed.

@clu However I got this error: /usr/lib/ undefined reference to `FT_Get_Var_Blend_Coordinates' collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status make[2]: *** [Makefile:25: mViewer] Error 1 make[2]: Leaving directory '(path-to-tmp)/yaourt-tmp-benzene/aur-montage/src/Montage/util/Viewer' make[2]: Entering directory '(path-to-tmp)/yaourt-tmp-benzene/aur-montage/src/Montage/util/Viewer' cp mViewer mHistogram ../../bin cp: cannot stat 'mViewer': No such file or directory cp: cannot stat 'mHistogram': No such file or directory make[2]: *** [Makefile:34: install] Error 1 make[2]: Leaving directory '(path-to-tmp)/yaourt-tmp-benzene/aur-montage/src/Montage/util/Viewer' make[1]: *** [Makefile:20: all] Error 2 make[1]: Leaving directory '(path-to-tmp)/yaourt-tmp-benzene/aur-montage/src/Montage/util' make: *** [Makefile:6: all] Error 2 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build montage. Which likely caused by harfbuzz. I googled and found that lots of people got similar errors caused by infinality, but I've never installed infinality and none of other packages went wrong before. Finally I downgrade harfbuzz and harfbuzz-icu to 1.3.4 and then the build passed. It might related to some fonts in the montage, but I'm not sure. BTW, there are lots of files(including some images and fonts) in other directories after make, such as data and man. Are these files necessary to be also in the package?

I have no idea how harfbuzz is at all related to montage. The build for montage only depends on base-devel...

Universebenzene commented on 2017-03-22 15:02 (UTC)

The new version of harfbuzz is not compatible with the building. I have to downgrade harfbuzz and harfbuzz-icu below 1.4 to build it the package. Hope the future version of montage will fix it.

This is no longer installed in /usr/local/bin. For ease of use with python-montage the binaries are now installed in /usr/bin. No more $PATH updates necessary. 3.2 is in beta so hopefully that will be ready soon. Tested on i686 with gcc 4.5.1

I have also packaged a python wrapper for montage which can be found here:
