I get the error:

@Hudd: This package is not out-of-date. It uses the same PGP key as the regular freetype2 package.

@dviktor Should be fixed now, I didn't sync this correctly with non-bootstrap version. Note that there is no reason to build this package once you have successfully built the regular version. It is just meant for bootstrapping in the first place.

Hello! After 06.01.2017 update the package doesn't build:

As you can see I try to build harfbuzz exactly after freetype2-bootstrap installation but it throws an error about cyclic deps

Seems like pacaur can't handle properly "Provides" field of freetype2-bootstrap during deps check...

[viktor ~]$ yaourt -S mingw-w64-harfbuzz
==> WARNING: This PKGBUILD describes a split package.
==> Specific package options are unknown
==> mingw-w64-harfbuzz dependencies:
- mingw-w64-configure (already installed) [makedepend]
- mingw-w64-freetype2 (already installed) [makedepend]
- mingw-w64-cairo (building from AUR) [makedepend]
- mingw-w64-icu (building from AUR) [makedepend]
- mingw-w64-graphite (building from AUR) [makedepend]

Compilation now seems to work...

I don't use pacaur but I suspect its algorithm to resolve the build order might not be smart enough (eg. doesn't take provides into account). Just build the mingw-w64 packages in the following order: freetype2-bootstrap harfbuzz freetype2 qt5-base

Or use my binary repo (at least for bootstrapping).

BTW: mingw-w64-qt5-base is currently outdated (I will update to 5.7.1 soon)

Hi! Installing this package doesn't solve the cyclic dependency problem for mingw-w64-harfbuzz package!

[viktor ~]$ pacman -Q | grep mingw-w64-freetype2
mingw-w64-freetype2-bootstrap 2.6.5-2

[viktor ~]$ pacman -Qi mingw-w64-freetype2-bootstrap
Provides : mingw-w64-freetype mingw-w64-freetype2

[viktor ~]$ pacaur -S mingw-w64-harfbuzz
:: Package(s) mingw-w64-harfbuzz not found in repositories, trying AUR...
:: resolving dependencies...
:: dependency cycle detected

So I can't install mingw-w64-harfbuzz -> mingw-w64-qt5-base packages

Version 2.6.5 should be sufficient for bootstrapping.

It would be so awesome to have an official repository for mingw-w64.
