The paths in 'build' and 'package' still refer to the 'release' part of the name, so the build just fails with cd complaining about no such file or directory.

Thanks, PKGBUILD updated!

Author's source tarball seems to have moved. This seems to let it build for me:

This should make it:

doing makepkg -s three times, will create the package.

The problem seens to be, that examples is a dependency for
the "targets" target.

Line 43 in the Makefile.

First removing the "examples" and compiling then
and afterwards adding the examples makes things working.

So, the order must be, first to create the targets - without examples
as dependency, and then later make the examples, with the build
stuff as depenedncy.

Seens just to be the wrong order...
library is dependent on the examples, instead of examples
are dependent on the built lib/binding.

Thanks, updated to 6.4.2; as for the package, you should probably send a deletion request to the mailing list.

Hello, I didn't saw that there already is a package for Ocaml && PCRE,
so I created my own:

Removing, replaced by the ocaml-pcre package.
