Native-comp emacs can take a while to compile, especially if you're only using 1 core. Make sure you have customized MAKEFLAGS in /etc/makepkg.conf to use all your cores:

This package builds with make NATIVE_FULL_AOT=1 by default, which native-compiles all the built-in Elisp. Edit the PKGBUILD, search for FAST_BOOT= and make it FAST_BOOT="YES" to get a shorter build time, at the cost of lazily native-compiling core Elisp at runtime.

@leejuyuu autoconf is part of the base-devel group which is assumed to be installed when building with makepkg and should not be included in dependencies.

Hello, I've read the PKGBUILD, and it seems to depend on autoconf. Is it possible to add this package in the dependencies? Thanks!

@memeplex this is a feature branch and there's a lot of interest in it becoming mainline at some point. For now, users can checkout the branch and test it. See [1] mailing list for last reported bug and [2] correction.

@flatwhatson great to know, thanks! Maybe not the best place to discuss this, but very briefly how are you seeing upstream regarding a merge to master? Is it way too early or just early?

@Rucikir @memeplex The pgtk-nativecomp branch built by this package has been tracking feature/pgtk since it moved to savannah.

You can see the combined commit history here:

Is flatwhatson's pgtk-nativecomp branch still updated? AFAICS the gtk work has been already merged upstream to a topic branch I understand this is native+gtk, not only gtk, but says "720 commits behind masm11:pgtk" while masm11's is "899 commits behind emacs-mirror:master".

Hi! Should this fetch feature/pgtk now that the branch is part of the upstream repo?

@Thaodan I don't agree that regularly rebasing is "cleaner" when it comes to packaging software. How will someone work out what changed since their last build, if you've re-numbered everything with a rebase?

I maintain the branch which is used by this package, merge from the official native-comp branch on savannah frequently, and intentionally use merge-commits to ensure long-term stability of commit references.

If you want a cleaner branch you can grab mine, I rebase the upstream rebase of pgtk regulary against feature/native-comp from savanna:

@titaniumbones Done, thanks for the heads-up!
