I do not encounter the problem you describe. Perhaps you have a variable set in your shell environment that is messing things up?

There is a bug in the package. As it is,it is crippled. WPref is being built into /usr/Local instead of /usr/local > I tried to fix the Makefile but when I makepkg it just blow away my file. The fix needs to be make uptstream. My guess is that the error is in the m4 files. I seem to think I can remember this bug existing in the source code a few years ago.

Thanks Paulo Andrade.

20120222-1 no longer builds due to giflib upgrade. I will mail you a src package that includes the necessary patch and updates to proper Archlinux git handling. The maintainer of extra/windowmaker should have upstreamed their patch.
