I got a conflict with mit-scheme, whose executable is at /usr/bin/scheme.

Fixed by adding InstallSchemeName=chez-scheme to the make install call in package().

as noted by Dybvig here

@owari and @ryn1x, thank you for your comments. Actually, x(org)proto is already in the dependency of libx11 and the upstream building guide do not say anything about x(org)proto but libx11, it is okay to remove it from make-dependency completely. Also, as parts of the base-devel package, binutils and make are not recommended to be in makedepends. So I also remove them. Thanks.

Please update xproto to xorgproto in PKGBUILD

makedepends=('binutils' 'make' 'ncurses' 'libx11' 'xorgproto')

It seems that makepkg could not detect xorgproto as a make dependency. I changed the make dependency xproto to xorgproto, then the error is gone and the compliation is done.

Thanks @xuanruiqi, I've updated the PKGBUILD file

I recommend adding --threads after ./configure, which will compile in threading support that is useful to some people.

Glad to see this package updated. I can help maintain this package too.

I can successfully install version 9.5.2 using the following PKGBUILD file. Maintainers, please update the package?

pkgdesc="Chez Scheme is a compiler and run-time system for the language of the Revised^6 Report on Scheme (R6RS), with numerous extensions."
arch=(i686 x86_64)
makedepends=('binutils' 'make' 'ncurses' 'libx11' 'xproto')
conflicts=('petite-chez-scheme' 'chez-scheme-git')
replaces=('petite-chez-scheme' 'chez-scheme-git')

build() {
  cd "${srcdir}/${_archivename}"

  ./configure --installprefix=/usr --temproot=$pkgdir

package() {
  cd "${srcdir}/${_archivename}"
  make install DESTDIR="$pkgdir"

@jumper149 I wouldn't say this package isn't properly maintained. These issues seem to be prevalent with recent changes to GCC. To my thinking, we're attempting to compile software on a new GCC, software that was written without the new GCC warnings into account. We can't fault the maintainer of the AUR package.

But the software authors are fixing the issues, it seems. The new GCC warnings have been getting plenty of attention, it seems, as I searched for similar errors.

Thanks for pointing out the -git package. It compiles and runs smoothly.

Im having the same compilation error as @bwmcn. Is this package maintained properly or is it better to just go with the '-git' version? @bwmcn there is also the 'chez-scheme-git' which is compiling fine (needs to download 1 GB of repositories tho)
