external htslib currently broken, please report upstream

pysam can be built with an external htslib dependency (c.f., i.e. one that we provide via aur (c.f.

would you be open to add htslib as a dependency?

this would mean setting the following before running install

export HTSLIB_LIBRARY_DIR=/usr/lib
export HTSLIB_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include

this then correctly links to /usr/lib/

Thanks for your quick reply. Please report this upstream, it is a general bug and not related to the archlinux package in particular.

Because with 640 and files ownership as root.root, nobody else than root can read them. User might (my case...) want to read these files; not only root should be allowed to compile a module that uses the headers of pysam.

Why is the default not fine? If that's how the developer set it...

The files in /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pysam/include/samtools/ are 640. They should be 644. Same for Python 3. Could you please fix it? Thanks

Yes, apparently you have to create 2 packages (see biopython for example). Could you please do it (or should I)?

I tried your PKGBUILD and it works, but I cannot upload it, because AUR complains that the package name can have only "lowercase letters". Any suggestions, apart from splitting the package into two packages?

Thanks for the changes, I'll rename the package python-pysam since it supports both architectures. This package is designed to be deleted now.
