There is an issue with parallel builds reported twice [1], issue #10 and #17. From what I remember, this is real, and it is certainly a race condition and shows up irregularly. I don't believe it has been fixed. It should be analysed & worked at upstream. Please stick to -j1 until this has been resolved.

Thanks.

Thanks @d_adler for the package, builds fine on my system. One problem is that this PKGBUILD insists on using a single CPU core (make -j1), overriding the user's settings in /etc/makepkg.conf. I tried cloning 0.0.20 from GitHub and building with make -j8, it went fine and was a lot faster. Is there a reason why you decided to force using 1 CPU only? Also the PKGBUILD doesn't verify the files downloaded; usually this is only done for a "-git" package where the file could frequently change. For a stable version package, most PKGBUILDs I've seen download the source as a .tar.gz file, whose checksum can be verified.
