Sorry for the delay guys.
Now building from yaourt is fine.

@ackalker Followed yer "rant" and was able to successfully build pocketsphinx. Thanks in turn for your perseverance.

There was a small typo in this line

cp -a <path/to>/sphinxbase/sphinxbase-0.8 <path/to>/pocketsphinx/src/

should be

cp -a <path/to>/sphinxbase/src/sphinxbase-0.8 <path/to>/pocketsphinx/src/

autoconf/automake pacman query results on my system:

$ pacman -Qo $(which autoconf)
/usr/bin/autoconf is owned by autoconf 2.69-1
$ pacman -Qo $(which automake)
/usr/bin/automake is owned by automake 1.14-1

This may be helpful in trying to figure out why pocketsphinx.c is/isn't rebuilt:

On my system:

$ pacman -Qo $(which autoconf)
/usr/bin/autoconf is owned by autoconf 2.69-1
$ pacman -Qo $(which automake)
/usr/bin/automake is owned by automake 1.14-1

Thanks for the perseverance.

From looking at the logs, it appears that in all of your attempts, cython is run with "-I/python" option, which makes no sense, and which may be the reason why it errors out.
This means that `configure` never got the correct directory for the sphinxbase Make variable right (but that's a problem of the upstream build system, anyway).

What puzzles me is why in your case, `make` tries to remake pocketsphinx.c, while in my case it doesn't (unless I manually force it to, and then it errors out in exactly the same way). Perhaps this has to do with different versions of autotools we use.

Anyway, this is the way (upstream intended) to force pocketsphinx to build with an included sphinxbase:

- In a directory, let's call it sphinxbase
- download sphinxbase PKGBUILD
- $ makepkg -i
- In another directory, let's call it pocketsphinx
- download pocketsphinx patched PKGBUILD
- $ makepkg -o
- $ cp -a <path/to>/sphinxbase/sphinxbase-0.8 <path/to>/pocketsphinx/src/
- $ ls src # should now output "pocketsphinx-0.8 pocketsphinx-0.8.tar.gz sphinxbase-0.8"
- *important*: Edit the PKGBUILD, remove the line "--with-sphinxbase=auto \"
- $ mv src/pocketsphinx-0.8/python/pocketsphinx.c src/pocketsphinx-0.8/python/pocketsphinx.c.bak # optional, to make sure it gets rebuilt
- $ makepkg -e

Sorry for the very long rant, but I hope this helps. Tested on my end, cython runs with no errors here.

3rd attempt.

* created a new directory in ~/Downloads called "sphinx"
* downloaded PKGBUILD for sphinxbase into that dir
* ran makepkg and makepkg -i successfully
* cd into ~/Downloads/sphinx/src/sphinxbase-0.8
* rm -rf pkg src
* downloaded PKGBILD from http://pastie.org/private/vh8dwy6gsldmmwr3bfmrka into dir ~/Downloads/sphinx/src/sphinxbase-0.8
* run makepkg.
* build fails with these errors http://www.privatepaste.com/916c95c2cb

OK, here's what I did.

* created a directory called sphinx
* downloaded PKGBUILD for sphinxbase into that dir
* ran makepkg and makepkg -i successfully
* rm -rf pkg src
* downloaded PKGBILD from http://pastie.org/private/vh8dwy6gsldmmwr3bfmrka into dir "sphinx"
* run makepkg.
* build fails with these errors http://www.privatepaste.com/7d018e6fba

@ackalker: I'm using packer-color to install. After that failed, I downloaded just yer updated PKGBUILD file, moved it into its own dir, and then tried building using "makepkg" but that failed with all the cythen errors.

Regarding the sphinxbase dependency, I never got any errors about it trying to build pocketsphinx, and I imagine pocketsphinx would not build if it wasn't present.

$ pacman -Qs sphinxbase yields; local/sphinxbase 0.8-4

I'll try removing sphinxbase, re-installing that manually, then building pocketsphinx again.

Ok guys let me know if it works.

ackalker commented on 2013-11-06 08:19

Also, please `rm -rf pkg src` before you try running `makepkg` again :-) .

ackalker commented on 2013-11-06 08:17

Ahh I meant EXTRA_DIST in Makefile.am, not configure.in.
