@wtemple: I recommend not pulling in the patch dynamically using curl without verifying its checksum. It should probably be included within this AUR package. Further: cURL may not be installed as it isn't in base-devel group.

I have gone ahead and changed the PKGBUILD to use the HTTP-based approach rather than the git-fetch-based one. I have no idea what was causing the build issue, but my suspicion is that it is related to changes you've made to your git config.

I'm looking into the build issue that's been reported, but I can't repro the error as of yet.

Is there a way to display flag emoji correctly? United States (US) for example just gives me (U)(S) instead of a flag icon.

I get an error from git about the referenced commit being an "unadvertised object" when it runs the fetch.

Worked around it by grabbing the diff via http instead: curl${COMMIT_ID}.diff | patch -p1

I've pushed an update that addresses the patch compatibility issue caused by changes to upstream libxft that haven't been released yet. In short, the package now applies a patch from a specific commit in GitLab rather than the current "merge request" patch.

Will there be a warning when this is merged into the official libxft?

Thanks! This enabled me to have colorful emojis with an unpatched st :)
