@mbostwick and @arsgeografica, I've made the changes but I get an error with the new version of GDAL 2.0.0. I created a ticket of the error in the official site of OSSIM.

This package should not include make or gcc as those are assumed for aur packages..This also appears to be missing liblas

Please update or abandon so this can be fixed. - for the patch - for updated build file

Building on a fresh (virtualized) install of Arch, I had to do two things to get it compile and install:

1) Install podofo, openvc, qt4, otherwise cmake would bail out
2a) Add cmake flag -DINSTALL_LIBRARY_DIR=/usr/lib to prevent installing in /usr/lib64 which pacman does not like
2b) Patch ossim-1.8.18/ossim_package_support/cmake/CMakeLists.txt to install ossim.pc in /usr/lib instead of /usr/lib64:

Somewhere in the configuration, ossimPredator spits a bzip2 warning (probably harmless):

become a required package.

I can't seem to compile past 59-60% with the following error:

[ 60%] Building CXX object ossim_plugins/ossim/CMakeFiles/ossim_plugin.dir/RadarSat/VolumeDir/VolumeDescriptorRecord.cpp.o
[ 60%] Linking CXX shared library ../../usr/lib/
[ 60%] Built target ossim_plugin
Makefile:127: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2

I'd like to get this installed for the updated orfeo-toolbox =)
