Dirty solution could be to install hevea, build and install auctex-git afterwards, and uninstall hevea (if you do not want to keep it.

There's an error when building:

"configure: error: --with-texmf-dir="/usr/share/texmf": Directory does not exist"

I overcame it by creating /usr/share/texmf by hand.

Side note: also tried building the package without --with-texmf-dir passed to configure. This created a conflict of the preview files when installing, therefore it was no solution.

New git version gives longer version numbers, no need to update.

I needed to do make -j1 DESTDIR ... in the build() section. I have j8 in my makepkg.conf. Perhaps the PKGBUILD should be changed to enforce -j1.

Well, I did not alter the PKGBUILD you provide...

When compiling, I get among other messages the following:

(Emacs finds the texlive installation and wants to install the preview files
therein. I wonder why it states that it isn't a TDS-compliant directory
though...)

ball, the problem must be on your side. This package does not install to /usr/local.

ball commented on 2013-10-13 13:04

I just wanted to rebuild the package but when trying to install I get:

Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Is this a packaging problem or a bug I should report on the auctex mailing list?

(I installed TeXLive manually via its own installer and I installed texlive-dummy. The texlive installation is up to date.)

Messages in th install file have shorter lines now.

haawda commented on 2011-12-13 22:45

Well, upstream would say, it is intended behaviour. And on a source based distro you ca decide on build time how the package should look like.

I changed the package so that it desides if /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/site-start.d exists, and creates its couterpart in $pkgdir if so. Ths will give different packages to different systems, but should work on all.
