The Makefiles chown some files to root:root, which causes problems when installing as a non-root user with a helper such as yay.

I needed to patch the gpio and wiringPiD Makefiles with the following line, added once under cd ../gpio and once under cd ../wiringPiD

sed -i "/chown root.root/d" Makefile.

Built for armv6,7 and aarch64 with gcc 9.x. Gcc 10.x causes this linker error error. I messed a bit with the source but still get nowhere.

Anyway, thanks Gordon. And SRChiP.

Updated package. It now uses the provided WIRINGPI_SUDO env variable to prevent sudo from running.

There's an error in line 126 of src/wiringPi/build The line contains just a $ and it gives an error. It has to do with the line in the original build file being: $sudo make uninstall and the sed command in the PKGBUILD looks for make uninstall. Changing $sudo make uninstall fixes that part, but then it complains about not being able to create /etc/ Changing the second sed line to sed -i 's|$sudo|sudo|g' build fixed this problem and lets the package be installed. It still complains that it can't load, but it looks like it builds the package alright. As the make install in the temporary usr directory is done as root now, it won't be able to remove those files at the end when cleaning up.

Added the 'armv7h' architecture and updated pkgver.
