Last August, GPlates 2.2.0 has been released. This is how I modified the PKGBUILD in order to get the latest version:

-prepare() {

 build() {
        cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
        QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt4 cmake \

The no-ansi patch is no longer needed as it is now an option added or not by Cmake depending on the compiler (the patch isn’t compatible with the current source code anyway). By the way, I also noticed that modifying make to make -j sometimes triggers a failed build. I could not reproduce this bug though.

Moved gdal to depends. Should now be fixed.

$ gplates

gplates: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Please add gdal to depends
