This new PKGBUILD is a work in progress. If you find bugs, please let me know ASAP.

@haawda thanks for the report. It should be fixed now.

I think compilation of emacs with X support is affected by this major cleanup:

I needed to install xorgproto. namcap does not mention it as dependeanca, so it might only be a makedependancy.

@Stebalien apparently you didn't read the warnings clearly written at the top of the PKGBUiLD. Did you?

Please don't override makepkg config variables. Users specify how they want packages compressed in their makepkg.conf and PKGBUILds shouldn't mess with these settings.

@cireu, this PKGBUILD reflects my use and taste, not yours.

You are welcome to configure the PKGBUILD anyway you like. That's why I provide configuration flags, unlike the vast majority of packages in core, extra, community and the AUR. If you feel it lacks some extra configuration option, speak with your patch; I'll excersize my privilege to accept it or not.

Why LTO was enabled by default? The install instructment of Emacs reports that LTO is an unstable feature. And I can't find any other evidence to support whether Clang+LTO is no longer experimental.

Question: is GPM support now a) built-in and not re-configurable with flags or b) completely removed? I see gpm as a dependency so I assume (a).

CLANG works now (thanks) but with a lot of warnings:

warning: optimization flag '-fuse-linker-plugin' is not supported

maybe just take out the flag if it's not supported anyway?

iexcel commented on 2019-10-22 18:57

if CLANG="YES", the build errors out.

configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables

@maderios I had the same problem with exactly the same test(s) failing (which is bogus, since emacs works perfectly after de-activating checks).

It's probably not useful to keep checks active for now.
