What's going on with this "2018 update"? This conflicts AND provides with itself (???), and as far as pacman is concerned "18" < "2017".

I too had problems in building the package, but solved them. I am writing my experience for future help.

makepkg was stopping with "No valid configuration found." It turned out that the default knowledge base of gprconfig was not correctly installed. More precisely, gprconfig (built, I guess, with gprbuild-bootstrap) was searching the knowledge base in /share/gprbuild, but no /share directory was on my system.

In order to solve the problem I created the /share directory with

sudo mkdir /share

successively I copied the directory gprbuild in


(relative to the directory with the PKGBUILD file) in /share with

sudo cp -r src/gprbuild-gpl-2017-src/share/gprbuild /share

The commands above, of course, need to be given as root (therefore, the "sudo").

This is not building properly, and it ends up with the following error:

raised ADA.IO_EXCEPTIONS.END_ERROR : a-tigeli.adb:96
make: *** [Makefile:120: install-static-pic] Error 1

I can't build the package. configure gets stuck at:
"checking whether gnat can build shared libs..."

Doesn't build against gnat>=5 due to changes in libgnat naming. Work around is in the upstream bug report:

Upstream URL should be ok now.

Thanks for reporting.

The upstream package seems to be unavailable:

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found

I was able to build this just fine with version 4.9.0-5 of gcc-ada, but I had to modify the PKGBUILD to prevent it from stripping static libraries.

I just added options=('staticlibs') to the PKGBUILD and it was fine.

Still broken.

Yeah, I get the same error.
