If you don't want to compile gcc-gcj, use pdftk-bin.

The pdftk package itself has not been updated in years, and gcc now longer supports Java and gcc6 is no longer updated. Hence, there is nothing to be done for this package unless something breaks.

No one has reported any error since the last time it's been packaged, so I have not needed to update it.

This package seems stale. It was last updated on 2017-09-25, whereas the pdftk-bin package was updated on 2018-06-25. I'd recommend using the latter, since this one is no longer being maintained.

Yes. That means something is wrong with pacman. This is the second time in a week that it has callously ignored dependencies.

@severach Isn't take already taken care of by the dependency on gcc6-gcj?

What do you mean? I have the latest version of gcc6-gcj and everything is working correctly.

Hello. Could you please update your PKGBUILD so that it matches with the new default community/gcc6-gcj library?

Also in a clean chroot pdftk can be built.

I use extra-x86_64-build -c -r <your chroot> -- -I <path to package>/gcc-gcj-ecj-4.9-4-any.pkg.tar.xz

I wish there were a +1 button on those comments.

However, it's actually makepkg -C that deletes the src/folder.

makepkg -C deletes the src folder. makepkg -scCfi is a good build command.
