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

Raimar commented on 2014-08-14 11:11

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.

KaiSforza commented on 2013-04-06 02:32

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.

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 warning: The 'AM_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro is deprecated, and will soon be removed. You should use the Autoconf-provided 'AC_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro instead, and use '$(MKDIR_P)' instead of '$(mkdir_p)'in your files. installing './ar-lib' installing './compile' installing './config.guess' installing './config.sub' installing './install-sh' installing './missing'

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