I get:

Could not read /var/cache/pacman/src/PKGBUILD

I think you should use ${startdir}/PKGBUILD as SRCDEST can be defined to something completly different in makepkg.conf.

I've added the desktop entry (generated with gendesk) and icon (from the source tarball) to the package.

stefano.facchini commented on 2013-08-23 20:34

The package should contain a .desktop file and an icon.

Both can be borrowed from the debian package (for instance http://packages.debian.org/sid/i386/golly/download), which contains:
* usr/share/applications/golly.desktop
* usr/share/pixmaps/golly.xmp

Huulivoide's suggestion allows the package to be compiled, but then Golly still can't run Perl scripts. The core problem is that Golly 2.2 doesn't support Perl 5.14. A better solution is to backport the changes from the CVS tree to add Perl 5.14 support to Golly.

Here's an update PKGBUILD+patch that does exactly that:

adding "-l/usr/lib/perl5/core_perl/CORE/libperl.so" to the failing
command will fix it, jus go to the source dir copy the g++ command
before errors and run it manually, then run make and makepkg -R

Fails to compile with:

golly-wxperl.o: In function `xs_init':
wxperl.cpp:(.text+0x6): undefined reference to `PL_thr_key'
wxperl.cpp:(.text+0x38): undefined reference to `PL_thr_key'
wxperl.cpp:(.text+0x68): undefined reference to `PL_thr_key'
wxperl.cpp:(.text+0x98): undefined reference to `PL_thr_key'
wxperl.cpp:(.text+0xc8): undefined reference to `PL_thr_key'
golly-wxperl.o:wxperl.cpp:(.text+0xf8): more undefined references to `PL_thr_key' follow

I have perl installed, the file referenced in the PKGBUILD exists, and removing the perl line from the PKGBUILD does nothing. My system is completely updated with testing and community-testing.

Didn't seem to compile with the perl option.

golly-wxperl.o: In function `xs_init':
wxperl.cpp:(.text+0x6): undefined reference to `PL_thr_key'
wxperl.cpp:(.text+0x38): undefined reference to `PL_thr_key'
wxperl.cpp:(.text+0x68): undefined reference to `PL_thr_key'
wxperl.cpp:(.text+0x98): undefined reference to `PL_thr_key'
wxperl.cpp:(.text+0xc8): undefined reference to `PL_thr_key'
golly-wxperl.o:wxperl.cpp:(.text+0xf8): more undefined references to `PL_thr_key' follow

I've been able to solve it by disabling perl scripting, removing

--with-perl-shlib=/usr/lib/perl5/core_perl/CORE/libperl.so \

from the PKGBUILD.

For the record, I have perl installed and that file existed.

Updated. Thanks maksverver and sorry it took me so long.
