@FabioLolix Thx, I will remove it with next update (though I don't see a real problem to keep such things in PKGBUILD even forever).

There's issue in dbus tracker:

Well, I've checked bugreports in and arch bugtracker but didn't find anything similar.

@TZ86, that was it. Do you know if there's a bug filed upstream for it?

Sadly, the build proccess seems to be broken with latest autoconf-archive version. If you have older version in pacman cache, try to install it via pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/autoconf-archive<…>, it builds and works well even with pretty old 1:2018.03.13-1 which I'm currently using.

Failing build:

libtoolize: copying file 'm4/lt~obsolete.m4' installing 'build-aux/compile' installing 'build-aux/missing' bus/ installing 'build-aux/depcomp' configure:18959: error: Unexpanded AX_ macro found. Please install GNU autoconf-archive If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow. See the Autoconf documentation. autoconf failed - version 2.5x is probably required

could it be a make dependence missing?

Just one issue, you only added the creation of the dbus user and group to post_upgrade()

You need to add it to post_install() as well because when a user installs dbus for the first time the user and group does not exist.

The "filesystem" package for arch linux has changed. By default it included a dbus user and group in /etc/group and int /etc/passwd

However they removed this last month in filesystem-2017.03-2.

This causes an issue for fresh installs that need dbus-nosystemd, it doesn't run on fresh installs because the user and group do not exist.

Please update the install file to create a dbus user and group on installation/upgrade of the package.

We've agreed to use dbus-openrc + dbus-nosystemd. All other variants will be removed.
