Update with package function

FreddieChopin commented on 2015-05-15 15:09

When trying to install (with yaourt) I get this:


==> Building and installing package
==> ERROR: Missing package() function in /tmp/yaourt-tmp-freddie/aur-openocd-git-libftdi/./PKGBUILD
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build openocd-git-libftdi.

Ok, I see that confiugure tells me, configure: error: The ft2232 driver is deprecated, use --enable-ftdi to build its replacement, or force the old driver with --enable-legacy-ft2232_libftdi

Is there any reason to use legacy and not just --enable-ftdi?
