because of gcc dual-abi, (cling doesn't support (yet))

the following works for me

cmake \
-DFFI_INCLUDE_DIR=$(pkg-config --cflags-only-I libffi | cut -c3-) \

@racko Thanks for noting this out, I didn't realized that build instructions had changed.

cling-git r2704.30cc58a-1 failed to build for me. I had a look at the build instructions at and replaced the call to make on line 53 with

cmake --build . --config Release --target clang
cmake --build . --config Release --target cling

This resolved my build errors.

It's definitely broken for now.
I've tried to build it manually with revision 191429.

Build fails on various points.

This should be solved by removing the clang=3.3 dependency, and installing the clang headers (by not removing them in package()). Perhaps it's best to install to /opt to avoid conflict with clang.

However the package takes too long and too much disk space for me to experiment. So I have disowned it. If I do get it working in the future and no one else has adopted it, I will.

I was hoping to figure out a way to install the headers into something like /usr/lib/cling/clang to avoid conflict with clang package, but failed. The question I posted at ROOT forum is here:

I get the following error:

Clang version is 3.3

No longer conflicts with clang, but instead depends on clang=3.3 and uses its headers.

This might be broken when the clang package is upgraded in the future. I'm trying to figure out how to make cling use a different path for headers. I've tried ./configure --with-clang-resource-dir, and patching CIFactory::createCI in cling/lib/Interpreter/CIFactory.cpp. But cling still uses /usr/lib/clang/3.3/.

I successfully installed cling-git, and the interpreter starts as expected. Where is clang installed, because when I type clang it says:
bash: clang: command not found

Do I have to install clang separately? If I type
sudo pacman -S clang
I get
:: clang and cling-git are in conflict. Remove cling-git? [y/N]
What gives?
