cf3e8ff350796165d20cd7078d2048ee82e850cb removed autotools (and with it ./prepare)

So now the prepare statement is something like

./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--sysconfdir=/etc \
--enable-debug \
--enable-pgp \
--enable-gpgme \
--enable-notmuch \
--with-gss=/usr \
--with-ssl=/usr \
--with-sasl=/usr \
--with-idn=/usr \

With optional --enable-lua

Hi Alad,

I've just added you as co-maintainer, thanks! I'm personally using neomutt from community so not really invested in keeping this up-to-date anymore.

Hi shioyama,

besides the below comment on mime.types, this package no longer conflicts with mutt since upstream changed all references to "neomutt". It does however conflict with neomutt in community.

I'm happy to (co)maintain this package if you don't have the time to make the necessary changes.

Building NeoMutt 20171006-5-c1eb1e today failed with

rm: cannot remove '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-tomtom/aur-neomutt-git/pkg/neomutt-git/etc/mime.types': No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-tomtom/aur-neomutt-git/pkg/neomutt-git/etc/mime.types.dist': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build neomutt-git.

Commenting out line 61 in the PKGBUILD

60 # Cruft we don't want.
61 # rm "${pkgdir}"/etc/mime.types{,.dist}

fixed this issue and Neomutt is packaged just fine.

Thanks for providing this package.

I can't build it (and neomutt as well). I have mutt installed.
I tried building with makepkg and yaourt (both from AUR and locally).
It has `configure: error: Compiler not ANSI compliant` as error.
I have gdbm installed (gcc, as well as all optional dependencies).
I build it `yaourt -S --m-arg "with-gdbm"`.
Where am I being wrong? Please help.

"compiler not ANSI compliant" is the last line in the output

checking minix/config.h usability... no
checking minix/config.h presence... no
checking for minix/config.h... no

result of `configure -help` after `autoreconf -i` (when directly attempting to build from its source code):

checking whether it is safe to define __EXTENSIONS__... yes
checking build system type... Invalid configuration `–help': machine `–help' not recognized
configure: error: /bin/sh ./config.sub –help failed

@sangy Thanks, updated to use master.

Hi, it seems that the neomutt branch is gone now. You may want to clone from master instead.

I've added --with-gdbm since we have gdbm in the depends list now, and it compiles correctly.

@qwence: aha!
neomutt-git is the latest (unreleased/undocumented) source.
You've discovered one of our new features -- multiple hcache backends.
Along with --enable-hcache you will now need to select one (or more) of
--with-bdb --with-gdbm --with-kyotocabinet --with-lmdb --with-qdbm --with-tokyocabinet
If you have multiple backends installed you can select one with, e.g.
$header_cache_backend = kyotocabinet
