nlohmann-json should be added to makedepends. After adding this dependency, build fails with the following error:

  LD     /usr/lib/libnixutil.so
/usr/bin/ld: cannot open output file /usr/lib/libnixutil.so: Permission denied
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [mk/lib.mk:117: /usr/lib/libnixutil.so] Error 1

@grawlinson Thanks for getting that working. Kind of a bummer, I did about 90% of that work a few days back but ran out of time to finish and hence we duplicated a lot of fiddling. Oh well. I'll work on migrating those changes over here.

Also we need to talk upstream into getting their stable tags merged to master so git describe gives sane results again.

Nix 2.4 is in testing, a few significant changes were required. Some of these changes should help this package compile again.

I brought this up to speed a lot with current build issues (largely copied from the stable builds) but there is still an issue with the ld step. I have the same issue trying to bump the stable build to 2.4. If anybody knows what is up with that please do let me know!

I found that the filename version was changed to ".version".

But I've met a new error, it seems there is a missing dependency :

configure: error: Package requirements (libcpuid) were not met:

Package 'libcpuid', required by 'virtual:world', not found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBCPUID_CFLAGS
and LIBCPUID_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

A dependency on https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/nlohmann_json-git/ is missing.
