Right, a new NSPR version is needed. Unfortunately, that wasn't released yet. I created nspr-hg for anyone brave enough to try it.

according to we need a newer nspr (>= 4.24) to build this again

Here's a better pkgver that includes the actual package version number:

pkgver() {
  local vmajor vminor vpatch
  cd "$_pkgname"

  { read vmajor; read vminor; read vpatch; } \
    < <(awk '/#define.*NSS_V(MAJOR|MINOR|PATCH)/ {print $3}' lib/nss/nss.h)

  printf "%s.%s.%sr%s.%s" "$vmajor" "$vminor" "$vpatch" "$(hg identify -n)" "$(hg identify -i)"

I updated the PKGBUILD and NSS got fixed upstream so everything should work now again.

Sorry for the delays.
There's an issue with python3 that should be fixed tomorrow. I'll update the package tomorrow as well.

Please fix it :(

I fixed the package, adopting the build instructions from the nss package of the community repo:

I'm pretty sure I'm getting the same issue as @DonOregano. It's because nss expects python to be Python 2, but on Arch it's Python 3. Simple fix is to add

ln -s /usr/bin/python2 ../python

in build() before the script is run. Also it would be nice if provides mentioned the version number (currently 3.32.0). This is needed by the firefox-hg AUR package.

@DonOregano: That's weird. Can you try to build it verbose? You can add -v to the script [1] to get more information. I just made a makechrootpkg build that works fine. scan-build shouldn't be used in the build.

It's not building for me at the moment:

==> Starting pkgver()...
==> Updated version: nss-hg r13294.fa15eb3ce158-1
==> Starting build()...
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

I tried to work out what is happening, but from what I can tell in nss/ is failing without providing any indication of what went wrong. Something to do with running "scan-build", whatever that is. This is where I gave up...
