The build also supports Clang if someone wants/needs it. Just change COMP=gcc to COMP=clang, I believe.

I fear I've done this horribly wrong but I added armv7 and bmi2 instructions. Feedback greatly welcome.

Could you also enable BMI2 instructions for those processors that support it? This provides a couple % speedup (versus x86-64-modern).

    elif grep bmi2 /proc/cpuinfo 2>&1; then

Can you please add the armv7 architecture. It is as easy as inserting the following lines after line 23 in the pkgbuild:

elif [[ "$CARCH" == "armv7h" ]]; then

I have tested it on my rpi 3b+ and it works.

@bulletmark: Thanks, i've changed it.

@ozgursarier, you updated this package but you dropped the epoch so it is actually flagged as a downgrade.

Apply this patch: "" or one like it or I will submit a request for this package to become a orphan.

I noticed the other day that calls a JavaScript module named "stockfish" when analyzing games.
