Fails to build with following errors:

/usr/bin/ld: ttfautohintGUI-maingui.o: file not recognized: file truncated
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Any advice?

Why is noto-fonts-alpha needed? Is it only a makedepends as mentioned below?

Here's the PKGBUILD I'm using to build it without docs: https://gist.github.com/undu/2f3a09209ddda603c2a77f58d9f6b252

I had this error, using pandoc 2.2.1, and with 2.2.3.2:

/bin/sh ./strip-comments.sh ttfautohint-1.pandoc ttfautohint-2.pandoc ttfautohint-3.pandoc ttfautohint-4.pandoc ../NEWS > ttfautohint.txt
pandoc --smart \
            --template=./template.html \
            --default-image-extension=".svg" \
            --variable="version:1.8.1" \
            --toc \
            --include-in-header=./ttfautohint-css.html \
            --include-in-header=./ttfautohint-js.html \
            --standalone \
            --output=ttfautohint.html ttfautohint.txt
--smart/-S has been removed.  Use +smart or -smart extension instead.
For example: pandoc -f markdown+smart -t markdown-smart.
Try pandoc --help for more information.
make[2]: *** [Makefile:1327: ttfautohint.html] Error 2

Looks like it’s from upstream, sigh...

@starlight thanks that seems to work. I've updated the pkgbuild

Failed when building the documentation because there are several obsolete pandoc parameters. If you just want to install this package quickly add

--without-doc

to the configure line when editing the PKGBUILD.

Can the noto-fonts-alpha be moved to makedepends array instead of being a runtime dependency? (and so should pandoc and other packages needed for documentation)

help2man should also be included into the makedepends array.

Something like this: https://gist.github.com/undu/296b2ec54977fd0b5be4fef4d5693197

For some reason for me pandoc fails spectacularly when trying to build the docs, so I had to disable doc generation anyway.

@vertebrate This is a bug in ttfautohint: it can only build is Qt version only has single-digit components, so it chokes on the 10 in the current Qt version (5.10.0).
