Its the recent update to gtk-doc that hosed things up. The gtk-doc.make file that gets installed by gtkdocize in that has errors. No fault of libfm upstream. I get a clean build with the following modification to the build() function:

msg "Start to build..."
sh ./
### add these three lines after invocation
sed -i '/_\$(V)/d;/AM_DEFAULT_VERBOSITY/d' gtk-doc.make
sed -i 's,done \\,done ; \\,' gtk-doc.make
autoreconf -fiv

gtk-doc package is seriously broken and needs to be fixed.

there seems to be an error where is not being created. Apparently, this is due to autoconf not doing it's job and preparing a few things for automake, so automake refuses to further. Not sure how to fix it, hopefully it'll be fixed in upstream.

This should be updated to reflect the new pacman 4.1 source array and version scheme.

I just rebuilt the package on my machine and verified the md5sums. Both the md5sums in my PKGBUILD as well as the maintainer's PKGBUILD are valid. Whatever the issue is must have been on your end, maybe a corrupted download?

jynnantonix version - automake patch md5 sum wrong as well in pcmanfm-git

I am follow the jynnantonix!!
and your PKGBUILD with submitted patch work very good!

so, the PKGBUILD from jynnantonix is better to compile.
try this!

Fails with "You must have automake >= 1.11 installed."

I've uploaded a patch and updated PKGBUILD here (

Also submitted the patch upstream (

To the maintainer,

Here is simple changeset to the PKGBUILD which
1) Updates the description according to description of the Git repo (
2) Enables building and installation of gtk-doc (as requested in the comments below)

Note, this is not a patch, but extract with changed lines (this comment box does not preserv verbatim copy of input):
