It doesn't work. On manjaro lxqt it's like it isn't installed, you can't find the program anywere.

Thanks. I have removed lesstif and added openmotif dependency.

I did only a short test-run, but

after the removal of lesstif it seems to build/run just fine with the current community/openmotif package.

Source tarball has been renamed in PKGBUILD

Upstream has renamed the source tarball from .tar.gz to .tgz

MAKEFLAGS="-j1" is now included in the PKGBUILD. Thanks!

Dear maintainer
Following on from @Thah's earlier comments, the same thing happens on my system which has MAKEFLAGS="-j8" in /etc/makepkg.conf
As this is a quick build using one core, I'd recommend changing the PKGBUILD file to include MAKEFLAGS="-j1" in the build section as described at...

Many thanks

Thank you @p1pon. The PKGBUILD is now updated.

PKGBUILD needs the following changes to build binary from v3.7.7 source as of 2016-11-29:

Purely FYI: For some strange reason it doesn't build with MAKEFLAGS="-j4" in
makepkg.conf for me. It worked with MAKEFLAGS="-j1". The probably
relevant messages where:

make[1]: warning: jobserver unavailable: using -j1. Add '+' to parent make rule.
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/cpkg/abs/xephem/src/xephem-3.7.7/liblilxml'
