No hard feelings, it was just a suggestion, in case you didn't do it already and liked it the way I did or people like bananagranola, who I think might like my PKGBUILD.

But one thing: On the mailing list there was/is a discussion wether or not we should use epoch on the AUR and most people agree we shouldn't use epoch, since this was introduced for the repos in case pacman wouldn't recognzie a package upgrade to be an update.

I myself am not completely sure on this matter. I won't use epoch, especially not on a git package. I just want to mention this.

Thanks Army. Actually I had made a PKGBUILD for pacman-4.1 myself. However, I am very much against adding patches in particular when that makes the PKGBUILD non-deterministic. Of course, you should feel free to maintain your own PKGBUILD with the patches and configuration you like.

Hi, I made a PKGBUILD for st-git which supports pacman's new features. It supports patches and a custom config.h. According to namcap, libxext is no longer a dependency, so I removed it.
Feel free to use it!

@vesath, thanks for the reply and the tip.

@vesath, thanks for the reply. Yup, that's what I've been doing.

bananagranola: No, sorry. The $startdir variable was deprecated long ago, and relying on a file that might or might not be there depending on what build tool is used (makepkg, makechrootpkg, etc.) does not make for a clean PKGBUILD.
What I recommend you do instead is maintain your own PKGBUILD (with sources and sha1sums entries for your config.h) and merge the changes with this "vanilla" AUR version at every update - that should not happen too often, and the merge should be straightforward.

Any chance of using something like this (borrowed from monsterwm-git's PKGBUILD) to allow for a custom config.h?

This package is now superseded by st-git.
