The pkgbuild now includes an unofficial 64-bit patch, sourced from There's some useful discussion there too, if you're interested. I don't have access to a 64-bit machine, so I don't know whether the patch works or not.

Disowned for you.

Sorry to be so slow to reply. I'd be happy to be the maintainer, if that suits you.

Would you be interested in maintaining? I haven't used this in a long time.

The modified PKGBUILD below installs into vendor_perl.

# based on the AUR pkgbuild

pkgdesc="Nethack online bones file exchanger"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('perl' 'perl-libwww')

build() {
cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver

# Install module in vendor directories.

package() {
cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
make install DESTDIR="$pkgdir/"

sed -e '/my $Run_as_user/ s/games/root/' \
-e '/my $Run_as_group/ s/games/root/' \
-i $pkgdir/usr/bin/vendor_perl/hearse

install -m644 -D $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/hearse.conf \

sed -e 's|# bones-dir.*|bones-dir /var/games/nethack|' \
-i $pkgdir/etc/nethack/hearse.conf

Also I've noticed there's a patch for 64-bit support via a link on the hearse website. You might want to include that as part of the build for the x86_64 case.

According to the Arch Pearl Policy wiki, this should be installed to vendor_perl:

during install edit PKGBUILD
change line 24 from:
-i $pkgdir/usr/bin/perlbin/site/hearse
-i $pkgdir/usr/bin/site_perl/hearse

needs modification in order to build. hearse is put in $pkgdir/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl or similiar where sed does not find it.
