check() function was added, if unit tests fail, you may ignore them by appending --nocheck to makepkg.

@mrcochobins04 Thank you! I believe I encountered the same issue, but I was able to resolve it.

I fixed the build errors by adding #include <X11/Xmd.h> in securproto.h and then doing makepkg -C.

@jxir Thanks a lot for your thorough explanation! Works fine:)

@Andrei_Korshikov The problem is unrelated to Meson. It is caused by the update from pacman-6.0.2 to pacman-6.1.0 changing the makepkg.conf default from



LDFLAGS="-Wl,-O1 -Wl,--sort-common -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,-z,now \

This PKGBUILD modifies the LDFLAGS prior to running Meson via

export LDFLAGS=${LDFLAGS/,-z,now}

that is the string ,-z,now is deleted from LDFLAGS (Explanation of the Syntax). While this was fine before, it will now result in a lone -Wl not followed by a comma.

It should now be clear how to fix the build:

   arch-meson "${_pkgbase}" build \
     -D ipv6=true \

The same fix was applied to extra/xorg-server.

xserver/ ERROR: Unable to detect linker for compiler `cc -Wl,--version -Wl,-O1 -Wl,--sort-common -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,-z,relro -Wl -Wl,-z,pack-relative-relocs -flto=auto -march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fexceptions -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=3 -Wformat -Werror=format-security -fstack-clash-protection -fcf-protection -fno-omit-frame-pointer -mno-omit-leaf-frame-pointer -g -ffile-prefix-map=/home/korshikov/.cache/paru/clone/xorg-server-git/src=/usr/src/debug/xorg-server-git -flto=auto`
stderr: cc: error: unrecognized command-line option ‘-Wl’; did you mean ‘-W’?

From my opinion, the problem part is -Wl -Wl,-z,pack-relative-relocs, more precisely -Wl with space after it. In my understanding -Wl must always be followed by a comma and parameter(s). I've never used Meson, so I can't understand why this -Wl is leaved alone and how to fix it.

Sorry, it just makes no sense without knowing that fact. I returned it back.

man you keep removing my _srcurl variable. That guy's there for my daily automatic builds ;)
