Thanks again, glitsj16.

Git dependency removed.

@mrxx
Thanks for updating and changes. FYI, probably just an oversight, but the release version doesn't need the 'git' dependency.

glitsj16, thanks for your comments. I've taken them into account.

Updated to 0.4.3.

Hi, as-is, this PKGBUILD builds the git version, hence (as per https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_CVS/SVN_PKGBUILD_guidelines) 'securefs-git' would be a more informative name for it. For git builds, using the pkgver function to keep track on version/release info avoids having to notify on each upstream code change and is considered good practice on AUR.

Some additional remarks:

- gcc-libs satisfies dependency (no need for gcc-libs-multilibs);
- hardcoding '-j8' might not offer the best setting on user machine(s), just use 'make';
- superfluous use of strip (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD#Package_relations);
- as of v0.4.3 a second binary 'securefs_test' is available, might as well add that in.

I do realize these remarks could be regarded as pedantic (or worse). Just thought to share them nonetheless, in the community-building spirit of the AUR. If you should be inclined to take the above into account, an easier route might be to change this PKGBUILD to offer the release version (updated by you on new upstream releases). This way you can keep the name as-is and add a fresh securefs-git PKGBUILD to the AUR (if you want to maintain that of course).

Examples of both:

- release version --> https://gist.github.com/95e87b2146ff5dbde8d8bb7dfd51f126
- git version --> https://gist.github.com/c1afd5c1c40e5d6b985670763c579d84
