I detected a small problem: This package will use minizip if it's installed. It will however not work if mingw-w64-minizip2 is installed, it only work with mingw-w64-minizip, which conflicts with the former.

When using this for building Qt 6 I get the following error:

CMake Error at /usr/i686-w64-mingw32/lib/cmake/assimp-5.0/assimpTargets.cmake:85 (message):
  The imported target "assimp::assimp" references the file


  but this file does not exist.  Possible reasons include:

  * The file was deleted, renamed, or moved to another location.

  * An install or uninstall procedure did not complete successfully.

  * The installation package was faulty and contained


  but not all the files it references.

It looks like the if(MSVC) in assimp-Targets-release.cmake should actually be if(WIN32). And the default for ASSIMP_LIBRARY_SUFFIX should just be an empty string when using MinGW.

If anyone has issues linking to libassimp 5.0.1 under mingw, or issues building assimp under mingw, try using the latest version from git.

First, makepkg --nobuild to set up the source directory. Then, replace the contents of src/assimp-5.0.1/ with a fresh checkout from Finally, run makepkg -esi.

I'm writing this, because a few key issues for mingw-w64 builds have been resolved recently, but haven't made it into a release yet.
