The last pacman 5.1.0 upgrade has changed libalpm's soname and has broken package-query. Recompiling solves the issue, but a pkgrel bump to force recompilation would be nice.

@Fincer: 'pkg-config is part of the 'base-devel' group which is a prerequisite and shouldn't be an explicit dependency:

Please add 'pkg-config' into makedepends.

I go the following error on WSL:

/bin/sh ../libtool --tag=CC --mode=link gcc -D_GNU_SOURCE -g -O2 -lcurl -o package-query aur.o alpm-query.o util.o color.o package-query.o -lyajl -lalpm libtool: error: cannot find the library '/usr/lib/' or unhandled argument '/usr/lib/'

I tried to install libarchive, but that did not help.

I'm able to reproduce it. It happens in package() function when executing install commands from Makefile. The PKGBUILD correctly quotes the spaces, so I assume the problem is in the source code tarball.

p.s.: It is a bad idea to have space in the AUR build path, as many PKGBUILDs don't quote $srcdir and "$pkgdir.

@the_jarles Yeah, but is this a package-query or makepkg problem? Have you been able to install any other package from /home/johannes/Linux Program/ directory?

Had a problem where makepkg would fail because I had a directory with a space in its name. The script tried to run:

libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c package-query /home/johannes/Linux Program/package-query/pkg/package-query/usr/bin/package-query

after which it would complain that 'Program/package-query/pkg/package-query/usr/bin/package-query' is not a directory, which is true.

As a workaround I simply renamed "Linux\ Program" to "Program" and makepkg would run without errors.

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!
