The thing is that xview (as I write this) cannot be built on arch, if you try to build it makepkg complains with ==> ERROR: xview is not available for the 'x86_64' architecture. and as I said there, i686 only packages are not allowed (*)

IMHO, the options are i) xview being able to build both i686 and x86_64 (ie arch=(i686 x86_64) in the PKGBUILD) or ii) xview build only x86_64 and remove xview-64bit or iii) remove xview and keep this (after fixes)

(*) I think that was what was agreed some time ago (but don't quote me on that); only PKGBUILD that can be ran in Arch are allowed in the AUR, not derivatives including Arch32 and ArchARM. However, maintainers are allowed to build for those architectures as long as the package can be built on vanilla Arch.

I'm sorry for my misunderstanding about this package and AUR/xview.

Still, the package name is misleading. Despite the source fork repo's name being xview-64bit, I think this package would best be named simply xview, and the original upstream code that only builds 32-bit executable should be put in a package called bin32-xview.

I think xview-64bit name should be allowed as it is the name used by upstream, though the upstream URL should be pointing to the github repo, IMO.

Some issues: this uses git sources instead of a pinned commit or tag. There are also unquoted $srcdir and $pkgdir variables, there other licenses involved, not just GPL, please double check (
