The last version of libarchive is missing the libtool archive file, so package-query will fail to build:

libtool: error: cannot find the library '/usr/lib/' or unhandled argument '/usr/lib/'

As a workaround, try installing an older version of libarchive (3.3.1-2 worked for me).

@colatkinson I think so, and it seems that your case is similar to others having this problem.

I tried a similar thing to @ljw, and the package built! I guess I must have libcurl installed locally elsewhere on my PATH, and removing my custom entries fixed the problem? Not sure exactly, but at least it builds now!

I had the same issues with this package mentioned by @colatkinson.

I use the Anaconda python distribution, which has had some issues with its libcurl affecting abs builds.

To fix this issue, I use the following in my bashrc:

export PATH="/usr/lib/anaconda/bin:$PATH"

and can build this package (using pacaur) by removing anaconda from the path:

$> PATH=$NOANAPATH pacaur -Sau package-query

If you use anaconda and prepend it to the path by default (what they recommend), this will break some builds when the conda libraries supersede system libraries expected by some of the packages built in userspace python.

A paste of the 'config.log' generated could be useful too.

@f2404 package-query-git also fails with the same error. Output is here:

@colatkinson Can you try to build package-query-git and paste the output if the build fails?

@f2404 I have curl, libcurl-compat, libcurl-gnutls, lib32-libcurl-compat, and lib32-libcurl-gnutls installed. Despite clearing the package cache and reinstalling, the error persists. Based on the output of `make`, it appears that the package isn't even attempting to use the libcurl flags, which is the root cause of the problem. Do you have any idea why the config script could not be picking up on curl?

@colatkinson The following line looks suspicious, can you check your libcurl is installed properly?

checking whether libcurl is usable... no

@f2404 `curl_free` is the only one I'm seeing an error for. See the output here:
