I added a patch, on to make it compile with recent version of freetype2 (use pkg-config to retrieve lib/include dirs, instead of it's own freetype-config).

Disable doc to make the package build, if someone have a solution, he can patch it. I just adopted the package, corrected it and disowned it. At least it works for dependencies.

The freetype-config and gtkdoc-scan UTF-8 parsing issue is still a problem.

@TPXP: Here is the bug in freetype2 build

You need to recompile freetype2 with the option --enable-freetype-config to compile libgnomeprint. You can find the PKGBUILD to patch here

You also have to add the --enable-gtk-doc=no option to the configure of libgnomeprint PKGBUILD.

An updated PKGBUILD for libgnomeprint is here

Looks like something is broken with Freetype :

configure: error: You need FreeType2 (freetype-devel v 2.x package) for this version of libgnomeprint

The freetype2 package is installed on my system. I tried installing lib32-freetype2 but still no luck :-/

Fair enough, that makes sense. Thanks biinari

Looks like bison is now in the base-devel group. I'm not sure how long it's been there but the general rule is to not mention dependencies that are in base-devel.

The problem has been fixed and is now working again.
Moreover, I noticed bison is not a dependency listed on this package's dependencies list. Wouldn't it better to include bison to the list?

Looks like the server outage for has been reported to gentoo already

It's been now several day that I'm getting an error while trying to update this package. It always says "failed to connect to sources.gentoo..." In fact, doesn't even work :(
