No problem at all. :-)

The makefile.patch just changed a couple of variables in the Makefile. It was a requirement for compiling v2.3.0 and other early versions from 11 years ago. I then kept updating this package every now and then and I forgot to notice when it became unneeded. Compilation now works on Arch with the default settings. So the new PKGBUILD without the makefile.patch is an improvement anyway.

@rudy.matela apologies, the fault was mine - a typo in my /etc/makepkg.conf file. Sorry to have taken up your time :|

3.0.3-2 and 3.0.3-3 both build successfully and work.

So the makefile.patch was fine and if it did something useful it could be restored. I don't understand the differences.

@jakedane, I released 3.0.3-3 now. It removes the need for the makefile.patch, which perhaps has caused the issue you were having. Please let me know if it works now.

The build fails for me with 3.0.3-2:

==> Starting build()...
: invalid option -- '2'
: invalid option -- '4'
Usage: make [options] [target] ...
(outputs the rest of make help)

@Misaka13514, I just released 3.0.3-2 which uses the SPDX license identifier. Thanks for the suggestion.

Please follow Arch Linux RFC16: use SPDX license identifier in PKGBUILD.

Thanks for maintaining! :)
