-git (and other VCS packages) versions and release numbers are not increased when upstreams does commits, it's changed only when PKGBUILD ist changed.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VCS_package_guidelines
"If the resulting package is different after changing the dependencies, URL, sources, etc. increasing the pkgrel is mandatory. Touching the pkgver is not."

Thanks - it works. Yes, it would be convenient to update pkgver for every new result of "git describe". By this "yaourt -Syau" recognize every new version.

Ok fixed it. Shall I update the pkgver every time there's a new git tag ?

Currently after updating, it is updating again. Package version should be pkgver=2.6.1.r18.ga5465a2 without trailing "-1".

KaiSforzas PKGBUILD seems better suited for this.

Please update this package. I have it in my git repository, with the correct description= line and correct pkgver() function.

You are also missing dependencies.

Maybe you could change ./configure to
./configure --prefix=/usr
I don't want my packages in /usr/local

oktoberfest: This is a bug in gettext, since it is using soon-to-be-obsolete autoconf macros provided by automake.

Hi,

this package does not compile anymore after upgrading from automake-1.11.5-1-any.pkg.tar.xz to automake-1.12.1-1-any.pkg.tar.xz :

autoreconf: running: automake --add-missing --copy --no-force
automake: warnings are treated as errors
configure.ac:14: warning: The 'AM_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro is deprecated, and will soon be removed.
configure.ac:14: You should use the Autoconf-provided 'AC_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro instead,
configure.ac:14: and use '$(MKDIR_P)' instead of '$(mkdir_p)'in your Makefile.am files.

I updated the file. At least it works on my machine.
