Hi all, we're stuck on v353 until upstream stops selective static linking. I've reached out to the community and if anyone is willing to make a patch for Arch that would be very appreciated.

@greyltc that's a great idea. I'll do it today, flag as out-of-date, and post a comment describing why we are struggling to rev up.

@clintval, maybe you could roll this back to 366 until we ( you ;-) ) manage to get newer versions compiling?

This is going to require some work for successful compiling on Arch Linux. On all currently posted versions (up to v364) I get this error which is likely due to selective static linking:

/usr/lib/libm-2.26.a(s_rint.o): In function `__rint':
(.text+0x9): undefined reference to `_dl_x86_cpu_features'

Should be fixed up and updated now. Apologies for the delay.

To solve the license problem, the license has to be between ().
