I can, but I'm curious as to why this flag seems necessary only on some machines. I could never reproduce this error on any of my machines.

I'll make sure this does not cause any side effects and change it later this week.

I can confirm the issue reported by @joukim as well as the fix reported by @zeniar. Any chance you could apply that fix to Makefile.Arch?

valandil commented on 2016-05-11 11:07

Yeah @archdria, that was a rookie mistake.

I noticed that you removed gcc-gcj from the dependencies, however, it is a runtime dependency, otherwise pdftk will complain about:
pdftk: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've bumped the pkgrel to trigger a recompilation of the package with the new version of gcc-gcj.

valandil commented on 2016-04-08 23:15

No. gcc-gcj is basically a subset of gcc (it's the Java compiler part obviously) and depends on the rest of the C library being there to run, i.e. gcc.

It was a [community] package a while back and was demoted to the AUR. I don't remember why though.

EDIT: You're right, I'm an idiot. I thought this was the gcc-gcj thread! I'll fix it when something is broken. Thanks.

Are you sure those are runtime dependencies?
I have a feeling they should be `makedepends` instead :]

BTW, any reason this package hasn't been picked up to go in [extra] or at least [community] ?

Give me the moron badge - will update and rebuild. Thank you and keep up the great work! (oh, now I remember why I hate compiling gcc-gcj 1 hour and 25 minutes to build that beast, sheeze) but then a successful 5 second pdftk build. All good, thanks.

valandil commented on 2016-03-28 19:15

@drankinatty This happens because you have gcc-5.3.0 installed, but gcc-gcj-5.2.0 installed. Update gcc-gcj and you should be fine.

pdftk has not been updated in a while: it is definitely not out of date.

@zenlar Good. I'll try to replicate this on another machine and, if I can, add this to the PKGBUILD.
