Thanks for the fix @drrossum!

I left a bug report upstream. For now, please make sure that the directory is managed by git and has at least some versioning information (empty repo doesn't help).

It looks like an upstream bug, autoreconf -fiv or ./ fails if the current directory is not (in) a git repository.

That's why it works on @drrossum system who works in the PKGBUILD git repo.
If you clone and use makepkg, it will work (but not as expected)

Thanks! Fix pushed

The latest version does not compile natively:

First the pdsh-2.32.tar.gz archive does not include a configure script
--> this can be solved by issuing an "autoreconf -fiv" in the build()
This implies to have a autoconf tools installed, maybe better bugging the original software provider.

Then, the package() function tries to remove a "${pkgdir}/usr/sbin" dir which does not exists.

Here is a short diff to survive until better...

This software is buildable also for armv7h
just add 'armv7h' in the PKGBUILD please.
