Strange. I just tried to reproduce this error but to no avail. It was failing for me in January and I added a patch back then. But when I was updating the package in March it built just fine (and still does) so I assumed the problem was solved and removed it. The patch seems superfluous (the missing option is already declared elsewhere as I pointed out in their bugtracker: and I guess it's not really a bug in mdbtools but something in autotools or gnome-doc-utils or elsewhere in the system that's broken on some systems (is your system up to date?). But anyway, since I can't trace it (any hints?) I have restored the patch. I'll keep it in until they either merge it or find a better workaround. I have also changed the way pkgver is constructed to include 'r' before revision number as the wiki currently suggests. Pacman thinks it's an older version and treats it as a downgrade. I suspect that this may cause some wrappers (like yaourt) not to report that the new version is availab.e

I get the same error as @natrio See here for fix: You need to put the patch into the pkgbuild before it runs autoconf (just patching the file will be overwritten).

mdbtools-git 0.7.147.g95cf90d-1 > configure: error: conditional "ENABLE_SK" was never defined. > Usually this means the macro was only invoked conditionally. The options --disable-gmdb2 --disable-scrollkeeper ended with same error.

pkg-config is in base-devel group, which, according to the wiki ( is assumed to be installed on your system if you're using makepkg. Even official packages do not list stuff from base and base-devel as explicit dependencies. But thanks for letting us know. It might help others missing this package for whatever reason.

I needed to install pkg-config to get it to work, as I had compilation due to the lack of the necessary macros like and as explained in,.html

.desktop file added. If anyone needs anything else, let me know in comments. This package is missing some stuff with respect to non-git one - like unixodbc support - because I didn't need it myself.
