@fenugrec This package has a buildtime dependency on ant, which in turn pulls in the JDK through the java-environment virtual package. Please follow the ArchWiki article on Java to fix the Java environment on your system in order to be able to build the package, or build it in a clean chroot.

[EDIT] as I found out, and @diabonas indicates, this was caused by having the env set to the "wrong" java (presumably for some other software that I've just broken, we'll see)[/EDIT]

I think this may be missing a makedepends :

src/pdftk/build.xml:16: Unable to find a javac compiler; is not on the classpath.
Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK.
It is currently set to "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre"

@sant527 This error message comes from the (now defunct) GNU Compiler for Java, not from OpenJDK that this package is using. It seems as if you are not using the Java rewrite that this package offers at all, but the original pdftk that is no longer in development. Did you mean to post this comment to pdftk-gcj instead?

Recently i was trying to combine pdf's with large number of pages.

I get the following error:

Too many heap sections: Increase MAXHINCR or MAX_HEAP_SECTS
[1]    17385 abort (core dumped)  pdftk 1.pdf 2.pdf 3.pdf ... 10.pdf output total.pdf

@haawda Good point, I have created pdftk-git based on the [community] PKGBUILD and filed a merge request.

@cmsigler If you want to continue maintaining the renamed pdftk-git package, please contact me, I will then orphan the new package so that you can take over.

The stable (tagged) version of this software has been brought to [community] under the name "pdftk". Maybe therefore this package should name "pdftk-git" now.
