I don't agree on the --enable-optimizations and --with-lto options: While they do improve Python speed noticeably, they also add considerable build time (think tens of minutes, at least, can range into an hour easily). I don't want the general Python 3.8 package to take this long to build – mainstream does not have the issue because the package is not built on every upgrade on every PC.

I fixed the failing symlinks, though, nd upgraded to 3.8.0b1

OK, when I try to build a4 version, first, I get this: configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-threads However, it doesn't affect the process. The other problem is that it throws another error: ln: failed to create symbolic link '/home/user/build/python38/pkg/python38/usr/lib/python3.8/config-3.8m-x86_64-linux-gnu/': No such file or directory and stops completely. Any ideas how to fix this?

P.S. It would be great to add --enable-optimizations and --with-lto as build parameters (python3.7 mainstream PKGBUILD has some detailed instructions).

Good point, I updated the URL.

Great package, works like a charm and does not conflict with Python stable! I do see that the upstream URL and the source download URL are still HTTP, it is better to change them to HTTPS. I did this myself locally before building the package (in both the PKGBUILD and the .SRCINFO) and can confirm that it works.
