I've added a new stable package, trace-cmd -- this PKGBUILD has been updated to work with that one so they cleanly conflict/replace each other in pacman.

@masami - I adopted the package and fixed up the depends/makedepends and deprecated optdepends since both python2 and pygtk are actually required to build or run certain components. namcap is coming back clean now, a smoke test of trace-cmd and kernelshark seem to be all working as expected.

I have my laptop in repairs for some 2.5 months already now, and it would still be there for some time. I'm not using Arch for now, so I'm disowning this; maybe I'll return to this package in future.

According to trace-cmd-git's Makefile, it requires gtk2 to includes gtk/gtk.h. so please add gtk2 to makedepends line.

Good, that was my patch ^_^. Updated.

The use-python2.patch is not needed as of 8435f519 upstream:

trace-cmd: Use "python2" executable name

Here is my small patch that changes "python" to "python2" in trace-cmd in
some places; it is needed to build and run trace-cmd python parts on
systems where python3 is the main one, for example, Arch Linux. As far as I
know, all distributions have "python2" symlink so this should not break

Updated this with VCS guidelines and added PREFIX and python2 fixes.

To install binaries in the correct location you should use:
make prefix=/usr
make prefix=/usr gui
make DESTDIR=$pkgdir prefix=/usr install
make DESTDIR=$pkgdir prefix=/usr install_gui
