Note that somehow binary versions of node.js work under modern Arch, at least superficially. So we can just repack the upstream 0.12 binaries to have 0.12 working on a fully updated Arch.

nodejs 0.12.17 builds and runs for me.

I was unable to build earlier versions, even ones that had built successfully before. mksnapshot would get a segmentation fault. I'm blaming a gcc upgrade, since it looks like the addition of -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks in 0.12.16 may have resolved the crash.

So I tried to compiling the new package, but it will always fail for me. Anybody succeeded in compiling 0.12.15 on an up-to-date arch install? If so please tell me how :D

Otherwise I'm actually considering giving up on this package. I have personally switched to a Vagrant VM for the last project where I need 0.12, as running node 0.12 on my Arch box caused more issues than it solved. If somebody wants to take over this package let me know. Otherwise I would of course like to have this up-to-date, but I cannot currently invest much time into hunting down the compile issue :(

@muhviehstarr Thanks, I will update it soon. But for the future it is enough to use the "flag as outdated" function, no need for a double notification by comment and spam everyone ;)

Make sure you make it provide nodejs=$pkgver in order to prevent bad bad conflicts.
