I've had to

ln -s /usr/bin/gij-6.3 /usr/bin/gij

in order to get it compiled. (after looking at the change history of the package I guess setting a corresponding env variable would achieve the same thing)

And the resulting binary does not run without LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/6.3.1
("pdftk: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory")

Please advise what is the most proper way to resolve this.

Oops, sorry, I forgot to push the new update! It should work now. ^_^

stops compiling.
gcc-gcj no longer available, instead should be replaced by gcc63-gcj?

I can't reproduce this. I don't have libiconv installed. I'll try to look into the matter.

Installing libiconv 1.14-1 and adding "-liconv" to Makefile.Arch:
export LDLIBS= -lgcj -liconv

seems to fix the problem.

gcc 6.2.1-1

@JanusDC, gcc was updated about 12 hours ago. I just haven't had time to update gcc-gcj.

I am experiencing the same issue as bakgwailo. I have gcc-gcj 6.1.1 and gcc 6.2.1. I do not see gcc 6.1.1 in the repo, nor AUR, and neither gcc-gcj 6.2.1.

@bakgwailo Make sure that your gcc and gcc-gcj versions match.
