12.1.01 now uses the BSD strlcpy function in unicoverage, which is odd to say the least. Possible resolution includes adding libbsd as a dependency and the following patch:

This would add libbsd.so as a dependency on all the built binaries and could be resolved by modifying the Makefile further to have -llbsd only on unicoverage.

@ondoho
Thank you for the comment, I've updated the PKGBUILD but I'm not using the XWindows so not sure if this is ok.
Please feel free to send me a patch if there is something wrong.
Thanks.

I don't understand why this isn't getting more upvotes...
the bdf-unifont from the repos is huge, and urxvt takes more than 1s to open a terminal with it. but with this package (pcf = portable compiled) it's back to near immediate, with all the glyphs.

but i had to run "mkfontdir" in /usr/share/fonts/misc to make it available.
maybe this could be added to the PKGBUILD?
also i'm not sure if /usr/share/fonts/misc is in the fontpath by default...

They're inside the tarball. Haven't you noticed?

Andy_Crowd commented on 2015-05-16 19:35

where can I find those files:
fontconfig-avoid-eye-strain.conf
fontconfig-upper.conf
ttf.install

Yes, the AUR interface is somewhat confusing here. Also, now I've got a naming conflict with three other packagers (previously it was not a problem, as my package was named simply "unifont" in AUR). Not sure about the best way to deal with this either.

lfleischer commented on 2014-07-12 17:16

Uh, didn't realize this is a split package. bdf-unifont already is in [extra], the others aren't. Not sure about the best way to deal with this.

lfleischer commented on 2014-07-12 17:14

This already is in [extra].

Problem solved itself: the bitmap formats don't actually support astral characters.
