Thanks, ras. I'll get your patch integrated this evening

Hello all, there is a newer version, and I also made some other fixes with the PKGBUILD:
* fixed dependencies suggested by namcap
* added proper license file from the source directory of x3270 (BSD + MIT)

Here is the patch:

I was not aware of a newer version, so I did it with 3.3.12ga11

tuftedocelot commented on 2013-04-06 14:36

@usch, is this with 3.3.12ga11 or the new version 3.3.12ga12 that I haven't gotten to yet?

I was able to build and install it with success after replaced the build()
function in PKGBUILD with:
build() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-${pkgver:0:3}
./configure --prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sysconfdir=/etc --with-fontdir=/usr/share/fonts/3270

make depend || return 1
make || return 1

package() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-${pkgver:0:3}
make DESTDIR=$pkgdir/ install || return 1

chmod 644 $pkgdir/etc/x3270/ibm_hosts

mkdir $pkgdir/usr/share/applications
mkdir $pkgdir/usr/share/pixmaps
install -m644 $srcdir/x3270.desktop $pkgdir/usr/share/applications/
install -m644 $srcdir/${pkgname}-${pkgver:0:3}/x3270-icon2.xpm $pkgdir/usr/share/pixmaps/

If you are not maintaining this package anymore, could you flag it as an orphan package ? I work with x3270 and I can maintain this package as long as I will work on IBM systems.
