This PKGBUILD verifies the authenticity of the source via PGP signatures which are not part of the Arch Linux keyring. In order to complete the process it is necessary to import the key(s) from the ‘validpgpkeys’ array into the user’s keyring before calling makepkg. There is a helpful article explaining this process by one of Arch Linux's developers located here:

Instructions on importing keys from a keyserver and how to automate the retrieval process can be found in the Arch Linux wiki here: This article also contains helpful information describing the installation of GnuPG, its configuration and usage.

Execute the following to import keys using gpg:

gpg --recv-keys <KEYID - See 'validpgpkeys' array in PKGBUILD>

The PGP signature check can be skipped by passing --skippgpcheck to makepkg.

Consult the makepkg manual page for a full list of options. []

@micwoj92 I am quite sure I’ve clicked adopt by mistake and didn’t notice until you said it. I am not interested in adopting it. Disowning.

@seds, since you adopted this pkg so fast, can you also update it?🙃

Running on Steam deck, I have this when attempting a makepkg -si

checking if this is really Intel C compiler... no
checking if this is really Clang C compiler... no
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking $CFLAGS variable... broken
configure: WARNING: your environment uses the CFLAGS variable to hold CPPFLAGS options
checking $CC variable... ok
checking how to run the C preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

All files except the .a libs are already provided by arch's ncurses package. You are free to not delete the static libraries if you need them.

Why are these files removed?

rm -rf "$pkgdir/usr/include/" "$pkgdir/usr/lib/pkgconfig" "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/.so "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/.a

They are useful for static linking.

sorry guys, forgot to enable notifications for this package. Just updated the package.

I can confirm that yan12125's PKGBUILD works well.
