Just for the record, if you are building it in windows wsl you might get a error for not been able to lock memory. To get around that, add the following in the build function after the cd command:

sed -i Makefile \
    -e "s/Wall/Wall -DNOMLOCK/g"

The goal is to edit Makefile to pass the -DNOMLOCK option when compiling ssss.c

Upstream was inactive for a long time nevertheless...
Perhaps we should switch to this fork:
I will take a look when I have some spare time.

Disowned. Sorry, haven't gotten around to this.

Voting for moving the man page as well... :D /usr/share/man/man1/ is the right place.

BoySka commented on 2013-07-15 11:39

the manpage should be installed in /usr/share/man/man1/ instead of /usr/share/man

It doesn't include the man page ( but thanks for the package.

Thanks! Package updated.

I have just added xmltoman to [extra]; you may hence use makedepends=(xmltoman) instead of downloading the tarball and setting the PATH yourself.
