Having tried to compile this package for both 1.9.3 (current AUR version) and 1.9.4 (current upstream release version), both failed with the error message @alexsander0m provided. It might be necessary to rely on -git version until another release is made upstream, or if someone would be able to figure out what was wrong and would provide a patch to install 1.9.4.

For reference, currently the build fails during make autoloads.

I'm trying to install emacs-magit and this is a dependency, but it's failing to build like this:

==> Removing existing $pkgdir/ directory...
==> Starting build()...
rm -f async-bytecomp.elc async-pkg.elc async-test.elc async.elc dired-async.elc smtpmail-async.elc
emacs -Q -batch --eval "(let ((generated-autoload-file (expand-file-name \"async-autoloads.el\" \".\")) \
(backup-inhibited t)) (update-directory-autoloads \".\"))"
emacs -Q -batch -L . -f batch-byte-compile async-bytecomp.el async-pkg.el async-test.el async.el dired-async.el smtpmail-async.el
Wrong type argument: stringp, nil
make: *** [Makefile:64: autoloads] Error 255
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
error making: emacs-async

It looks like the same issue was found in Debian and for what I could gather, they just skip running make/make install?

Any idea?
