I found that to build this package I needed to make these changes:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 38ced97..f4fad28 100644
@@ -13,8 +13,8 @@ arch=('x86_64' 'i686')
depends=('boost' 'eigen' 'flann' 'vtk' 'qhull' 'qt5-base' 'glu' 'qt5-webkit'
- 'openmpi' 'python2' 'libxt')
-makedepends=('cmake' 'gl2ps')
+ 'openmpi' 'python2' 'libxt' 'proj' 'libharu')
optdepends=('cuda' 'openni2' 'python2-sphinx')

otherwise I was seeing build failures due to /lib64/ and /usr/lib/ not existing

I wasn't sure what gl2ps was but since makepkg complained it was missing for me and considering I had otherwise managed to built libpcl from git on my system I figured it might not really be required. At least for me I had no obvious problem building without gl2ps.

Just missing 'libharu' in the dependencies to make it build.

This packages requires explicitly ( to be precise) boost 1.64. So with the latest boost installed (atm boost 1.65) all programs using pcl can't be started.
Workaround for me is to use the package pcl-git, but this requires to compile pcl from source, which takes a while

hey, bchretien, I'm listed as co-maintainer of this package (along libccd and python2-empty). I would like to remove myself as co-maintainer in all three, but I don't know why. Is it something you need to do?

It seems like libpcap is at least an optional dependency. Removing it from my system resulted in both pcl_viewer and simple io functions complaining about missing.

shared object missing after updating libboost, "ln -s **" leads to undefined reference. how should i avoid compiling with specific version of "so"? or do i have to reinstall after every update? thanks!

If you are getting ld errors about or needed by /usr/lib/vtk-5.10/, I had to remove an ancient vtk5 on my system (which probably "provided" vtk), afterwards it compiled just

please note that 1.8.0 non rc was released

@Alad: it depends on number of parallel make jobs as set in MAKEFLAGS. 4 should be fine for 8GB of RAM (unless you run some other memory hungry app), with 8 you need more than 10GB.

How much RAM does this need to compile? At 8 GB, I ran out of swap and OOM killed the compiler process.
