Seems to work fine with libnghttp2


checking for libnghttp2... yes
Libs:               -lpcre2-8  -lidn2   -lzstd  -lbrotlidec  -lz  -lgpgme  -lnghttp2  -lpsl  -lgnutls


wget2 --http2-only --progress=bar \

From the build requirements it looks like this package will build with core/libnghttp2 instead of nghttp2 from AUR.

Hello, may I suggest a few changes to the PKGBUILD?

  1. nghttp2 (which is now in AUR) can be replaced with libnghttp2. (README says libnghttp2, and libnghttp2 is still in official repo.)
  2. lzip can be dropped. (README says "optional, if you want to build distribution tarballs", for Arch packaging this is probably not needed.)
  3. lzlib can be added for lzip decompression support (Accept-Encoding: lzip). (README does not mention lzlib. Interestingly, we need lzlib and not lzip for Lzip compression: yes.)
  4. --with-bzip2 and --with-lzma can be added. (even though they are installed, .configure apparently does not enable bzip2 and XZ/LZMA support unless these two flags are specified.)
