@shadizzle it is assumed that the base-devel group is installed

I was experiencing build issues that were resolved by installing the `automake` and `autoconf` packages from core. I'm new to the AUR and arch package management, but it seems that these should be explicit dependencies.

@flacks do you plan to fix build issue?

@mcirillo , no idea, sorry.

I replaced archlinux with a different linux on my computers, so I'm going to disown the package. You can be the new maintainer if you want.

Build fails with the following:

Any ideas?

EDIT: I was able to work around this by adding "./configure --enable-lenient ..." to PKGBUILD

If you are using this for ember-cli you might need to increase the amount of inotify watchers:

"echo fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288 | sudo tee /etc/sysctl.d/40-max-user-watches.conf && sudo sysctl --system"

@vith I forgot about watchman-wait and watchman-make, since I don't use them. I created a new package, python2-pywatchman [1], where these 2 commands are included. It makes more sense to me, to have an extra package for the python stuff. Feel free to comment if you have different thoughts about it.
