I agree with @andykluger below and I want to report almost all the libraries are missing with the recent update, therefore marking this package as outdated.

This is deceptive. A package on here with this name should build the project from source.

If you want to provide a binary-installing pkgbuild, please do so in a separate package "gifcurry-bin"

The program complains about missing gtksink, installing gst-plugin-gtk solves the problem

There's a new version, released 13 hours ago.

There's one more dependency without which the program doesn't work quite right. It does work but not the way it should: gst-libav.

I've got compilation error:

[257 of 295] Compiling GI.Gio.Interfaces.File ( GI/Gio/Interfaces/File.hs, dist/dist-sandbox-9a563519/build/GI/Gio/Interfaces/File.o ) ghc: panic!

While forcing the thunk for TyThing IsFile which was lazily initialized by initIfaceCheck typecheckLoop, I tried to tie the knot, but I couldn't find IsFile in the current type environment.

Please report this as a GHC bug:

Is it package specific (missing dependency or something) or should go to upstream?

Unfortunately, I didn't see any errors.

Hello gourdcaptain.

The "WARNING: Installation path /home/gourdcaptain/.local/bin not found on the PATH environment variable" is expected. Were there any reported errors?

The stack-bin package is installed along with this package to avoid installing the many packages needed by the standard stack package ( and so that building this package works out of the box. If a "stack" command exists, the stack-bin installation is skipped. Making stack-bin a makedepends would cause this package to error in the event that stack-bin was not previously installed since stack-bin is an AUR package and pacman will not resolve it.

There are relocatable binaries for Linux located here: It may be best to base the PKGBUILD off of these binaries instead of Hackage.

Failed for me still after alex compiled right after a message of:
"WARNING: Installation path /home/gourdcaptain/.local/bin not found on the PATH environment variable".
Also, is there a reason stack-bin is installed as part of the script instead of making it a makedepend?
EDIT: Okay, I see, it's so it deals with other packages having stack. Not sure if I can think of a less awkward way either.
