Please don't flag this package out-of-date just because the version number displayed on AUR seems old. This is normal for VCS packages. As long as building the package works without problems, it isn't necessary to update the PKGBUILD here. makepkg will automatically retrieve the latest version when you build the package locally.

@jck: As Scimmia said, can you try setting e.g. MAKEFLAGS="-j<number of CPU cores>" in your makepkg.conf? On a recent system, using Make or Ninja should not really make a difference when compiling Neovim - it should only take a few seconds either way. On an older system of mine, Make actually runs faster than Ninja, so I would keep it unless there is really a significant advantage of using Ninja over Make for compiling Neovim on some systems.

@jck, probably because you didn't set the number of jobs in makepkg.conf

Could you update the PKGBUILD to use ninja(similar to

This leads to a considerably faster build.

Shatur: Updated the PKGBUILD, sorry it took so long.

In my previous comment I meant to enable support for Arch vim packages. This is needed for fzf, for example.

YES! It has installed latest version:

NVIM v0.5.0-424-g6ca7ebb34

Could update the package according to the official? This is needed to make Arch vim packages work.

Here is the updated PKGBUILD.

The upstream issue has been fixed, building the package should work again.

The failing build stuff got an issue on upstream repository:
