This was already discussed around https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pygtk/?PP=250#comment-740369

The ONLY correct solution for updating config.guess is re-running autoreconf -fi. However, the arch=('x86_64') in the PKGBUILD does suggest it isn't tested on ARM, and it may or may not work or need additional workarounds to compile on such architectures. It is up to the maintainer to decide whether to add/test this support.

This package causes problems compiling on archlinux arm aarch64, because the config.guess in the sourcecode is way out of date. This can be worked around by including a file called 'config.guess' with this http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD content and copying it to the builddir. I did this by adding 'config.guess' to source, 'Skip' to sha256sums and 'cp ../config.guess ./' at the end of prepare in the PKGBUILD.

@zman0900 I think the point is that it is unlikely that someone maliciously replaces the patches but does not modify the PKGBUILD since they are downloaded as a bundle. Silent corruption should be caught when you clone the git repository, but is probably technically a possibility. Ideally the patches and the PKGBUILD would be signed, but in practice, the Arch way is buyer beware. You should be reading the PKGBUILD and associated files and make sure you know what they are doing.

How so? Without them, file integrity is not checked. Patches could be silently corrupted or maliciously replaced and it would go unnoticed.

ragouel commented on 2020-05-18 23:43

@zman0900 because they are redundant.

Why are checksums skipped on the patch files?

What's the actual command you ran?

What Operating System are you using ?

I just get error: missing package metadata When trying to install this.

Hmm, this could be because gitlab generated patches have the server's running git version embedded in the footer, and they've updated their server. Kind of silly... :(

If the current version of the patch is git added to the AUR repository it should continue to work with no modifications to the PKGBUILD, and be proof against this in the future.
