Check LDFLAGS in your makepkg.conf, the one shipped by arch does not have -pie.

/usr/bin/ld: -r and -pie may not be used together
since two or three weeks.

Probably an Arch bug or GHC shortcoming, though.

Shouldn't git be a makedepend? Currently building in a clean chroot fails because git is not automatically installed.

Thanks for providing the PKGBUILD, btw :)

I get the following error: :: xmonad-git: installing haskell-x11 (1.8-1) breaks dependency 'haskell-x11<1.8'

I'm not going to bother, it is trivial to just update the PKGBUILD for haskell-x11(-xft), and hopefully there is a new xmonad release soon™ so that haskell-x11 in the repos can get bumped anyway. But feel free to make haskell-x11-git if you like. Would require users to rebuild haskell-x11-xft too btw.

Thanks! I think having the dependency wrong for a few days for the sake of spending time with family is completely understandable :)
Should we make a haskell-x11-git package, perhaps, to avoid this situation?

Nothing I can do about haskell-x11 being too old in [community]. You can bump it yourself if you are not using anything that depends on <= 1.6. Was going to update the dep in the PKGBUILD earlier but then I got invaded by family. Stupid holidays.

I am getting
Encountered missing dependencies: X11 == 1.7.*

Also, after getting this error, I have to manually remove xmonad.desktop to be able to try (and fail) to install this package again.

haskell-x11 has been flagged out of date a few days ago.
