I gave it a try by both using pkgctl build basing it on extra, and also making a new clean chroot manually as per wiki instructions and i couldn't replicate the problem.

In theory pod2man should be in the PATH as per perl install (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Perl_Policy#Binaries_and_scripts), the pod2man package (which seems to be in aur) seems to only put a symlink in /usr/bin to the pod2man in /usr/bin/core_perl, which shouldn't be necessary per se.

I tried to build in a clean chroot, it failed with the message "/build/PKGBUILD: line 18: pod2man: command not found". I added pod2man to makedepends=

Setting the arch to 'any' is wrong because the field not only refers to the source, but also to the compiled package. That means that if you build this package on x86_64, the resulting package will be marked as compatible for ARMv7h, for example, which it isn't. For packages containing binaries, all arches must be explicitly listed, e.g. ('x86_84' 'armv7h' 'armv8') or whatever the syntax is.

'any' is for stuff like documentation and interpreted scripts.

Could you update this to the latest version v1.2.0 and change the arch to ('any') so I don't have to change this for my raspberry pi. Thanks

pod2man is not found in the default arch linux path... One solution would be to add dir /usr/bin/core_perl/ to PATH var in your build() function - or call /usr/bin/core_perl/pod2man directly Thanks

Thanks done the changes.

You can remove the makedepends array from the PKGBUILD because 'gcc' is in the base-devel group. Also, you can remove "$srcdir/" from the cd commands because, by default, makepkg cd's to $srcdir before the functions are run. Thanks
