You'd better take over this package then.

Let me be more specific: it is impossible for this to build in a clean environment because all of the nim dependencies are unavailable and they are not part of the nim package. If you build this in a clean chroot (the way all Arch packages should be built) it will fail.

You can also see that there is a missing dependency on glibc as per namcap output - Nim programs almost invariably depend on libc being available.

Therefore this package is broken as is.

@eclairevoyant It builds for me:

Thanks for your suggestions, but please don't use out-of-date flagging for something that is not out of date.

This doesn't build as is due to missing dependencies. I suggest creating a package.json (or downloading it from here), adding git to the makedepends, and then adding nimble install --depsOnly to the prepare() function. You're also missing a dependency on glibc.

You can also remove all the || exit 1 calls, those are unnecessary boilerplate; if any step fails makepkg will stop immediately.
