It's an issue with ocaml-pcre, I've posted a fix in that AUR, see:

Seems to be unable to find the ocaml-pcre in makedepends.

Checking for PCRE... not found
Sorry, PCRE was requested.
Get the PCRE-OCaml library from:,
or disable the build against PCRE-Ocaml (not recommended).
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Seems "" is down now. If anyone is eager to use this package right now, use another mirror site to download the tarball: change "" to "" in the PKGBUILD.

Firefox says, when I want to view

"The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments."

So, this is not a package issue.

Would be nice if people would check such things before writing a comment here.

@raulo.olapodrido: there is ocaml 4.06 now the current ocaml in Arch. You have to recompile ocamlnet, and before that, you have to recompile any ocaml-stuff that ocamlnet relies on. See "Dependencies" above.

(Should be sufficient, to first compile ocaml-pcre again and then ocamlnet.)

build fails:

File "netstring_pcre.mli", line 1:
Error: /usr/lib/ocaml/pcre/pcre.cmi
is not a compiled interface for this version of OCaml.
It seems to be for an older version of OCaml.

The following is based on the error reported by cuttooth87: This package will not build with the latest version of the "nettle" package (3.4-1), required by the "gnutls" package. I was able to build this package by downgrading the "nettle" package to 3.3-1.
