Needed changes:

  • Remove CPU detection code. It produces binaries that crash when used on a different computer. I understand that the upstream Makefile also tries to detect CPU.

    Here is a PKGBUILD written for aur/stockfish that demonstrates how to bypass CPU detection and respect CXXFLAGS set in makepkg.conf

  • Update pkgver() to generate strings in #.r#.g# format. Don't forget to remove the tag prefix sf_. The following generates: 16.r203.g0fca5605

    git describe --long --tags --abbrev=8 --match="sf_[0-9]*" \
      | sed -E 's/^[^0-9]*//;s/([^-]*-g)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

Hi. Over at we expanded the CPU feature detection to all available targets. Would be nice to support those also here.
