SFML_USE_SYSTEM_DEPS only matters for Windows, Android or iOS. Not generic linux.

And you'd have to set it to TRUE to link system libs on the platforms above, quoting CMakeLists.txt:

sfml_set_option(SFML_USE_SYSTEM_DEPS FALSE BOOL "TRUE to use system dependencies, FALSE to use the bundled ones.")

I double checked with ldd /usr/lib/libsfml-*.so and pacman -Ql sfml-git. Bundled libs are not part of the package and the sfml libs are linked against the systems libs.

No action on this package required, IMHO. If you think otherwise: Proof please.

It seems you need to set cmake option SFML_USE_SYSTEM_DEPS=FALSE, otherwise the build will use the source-included external libraries instead of the ones installed on the system or build environment.

This should be updated to use a pkgver() function.

There was a problem with a CMakeLists.txt, here is the new PKGBUILD

Thanks for the comments guys, I'll get to updating the package during the weekend.

Why is it flagged as outdated ? There are still updates on the repo !

The cmake option for building the docs is SFML_BUILD_DOC and the option for building the examples is SFML_BUILD_EXAMPLES. Source:

The "make doc" in build() doesn't work, FYI. I had to remove it to get the package to build because there's no "doc" rule.
