anaveragehuman: It was added to keep debug symbols to get backtraces on crashes/assertion failures.

Is there a specific reason as to why `options=(!strip)` is in the PKGBUILD? It seems to make the package 7 MB larger compared to neovim in the community repository.

I installed lua51-mpack and it worked. However I didn't see a standard error that usually shows up when a package is not there. Also shouldn't lua51-mpack be installed as it in arch repository? PS: I tried makepkg -C so that might be needed.

blueyed: I can't reproduce; did you try makepkg -C? If the problem persists, can you open an issue on Github? I think that should be fixed upstream.

Fails to build for me:

-- Replacing -O3 in CMAKE_C_FLAGS_RELEASE with -O2.
-- Removing --sort-common from linker flags.

-- [/usr/bin/lua] The 'lpeg' lua package is required for building Neovim
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:395 (message):
A suitable Lua interpreter was not found.

The problem is that it uses /usr/bin/lua and not luajit from makedepends.

This fixes it:

I'm still having the problem indicated by cirk2. His patch fixed it.

Thanks fwalch.

libmpack still does not have a new release with a nice Makefile for systemwide installation, but I packaged it with Luarocks for now.

Thanks to sulhan, zoqaeski, bradst, cirk2 for reporting the broken build.

Yeah got confused by the cmake output which only reported the missing packages for /usr/bin/lua also works without that.
