@Haimen Toshi : thanks for the comment and --disable-werror option. I want to provide GUI version because it is working this way.

I try to stick as close as possible to official qemu package.

@FredBezies :
Instead of editing makepkg.conf to disable error-checking, you can add "--disable-werror" to the configure parameters in PKGBUILD and it should work. At least that how it worked the last time I compiled. I'll test it as soon as I get home. Thanks.
EDIT : Taking a look into the PKGBUILD, it appears that it pulls unneeded deps. Some of them are for the GUI anyway. Please take a look at this PKGBUILD :

"Install the qemu package (or qemu-headless for the version without GUI) and below optional packages for your needs:"

Both qemu-git and qemu-headless-git are conflicting which each other. Same for extra packages.

I've tried to update, ran into this conflict and removed all other qemu packages besides qemu-git(perhaps I should remove it as well?) When updating qemu-git everything goes smoothly up until installation and I get the following:

loading packages...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: qemu-arch-extra-git and qemu-headless-arch-extra-git are in conflict

Since neither were installed prior, it must be something with the big changes you've made?

Tried to make something as clean as possible. It was not that easy.

1) Imported official PKGBUILD and tweaked it to make it work with a git source.
2) Testing users with gcc 7.x : please modify your /etc/makepkg.conf and add for build time -Wno-error to both CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS or it won't build successfully.
3) For some technical reasons, I keep official seabios in PKGBUILD for now.
4) Working on how to provide a cleaner revision number.

Any feedbacks are welcome!

Fails for me:

Hi there, you might want to rename `or32` to `or1k` in `_extra_arches`.
