Regarding niezniszczalny's error, I encountered it as well. I believe it will be fixed upstream in the next release. In the meantime, updating the MAKEPKG file to the following should resolve the issue (it applies a simple patch to the troublesome file before building - see the added prepare() function):

# Maintainer: bug <>
# Contributor: Lone_Wolf <>
pkgdesc="A clone of the famous Siedler of Catan game"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
makedepends=('pkgconfig' 'intltool' 'librsvg' 'itstool')
prepare() {
    cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/common"
    patch game.h <<EOF
< const gchar *default_player_style;
> extern const gchar *default_player_style;
build() {
  cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  make || return 1
package() {
  cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
  make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

Please report the issue to upstream. In the mean while, you can try to compile with an older GCC.

Better PKGBUILD :)

I accidentally flagged this. I don't know how to undo it.

The PKGBUILD should say


Also the "make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install" should be in a package() function.

The current version is 15.2.

I fixed my issues by installing extra/librsvg. Perhaps you could add that to the depends?

Not sure. I never really encountered the issue. As you say, you can't even reproduce it on a different machine.
If you figure anything, please let me know.
