Hi @synnick

I understand your choice, but I think the point of a Linux distribution is to be consistent: in ArchLinux, packages install under /usr. It is normal that, when installing a software using its source (as opposed to the distribution packages), you install it somewhere under /opt or /usr/local. But when installing an Archlinux or AUR package, one may expect that it installs under /usr.

My 2 cents,

Hi Pierre,

Sorry for the move of the package to /opt/zeek. I've been slowly aligning this package with the style used upstream by Johanna Amann (0xxon) on the OBS found here:

A few months ago, I actually opened a pull to include a zeek PKGBUILD and the response was to stick with /opt/zeek and further split the zeek package into a few different subcomponents (libbroker, zeekctl, zeek-core, etc, etc).

So I intend to follow that style with this PKGBUILD because it will reduce differences across OSes even if it isn't in the standard dirs.

I don't think it is a good idea to move the package to /opt/zeek instead of the regular /usr, since we are building a package. Is there a particular reason for this change?

Hi! You should add swig to makedepends. Thanks

Updated, thanks for catching that.

I had to add git to makedepends to make it build instead of erroring out with "==> ERROR: Cannot find the git package needed to handle git sources.".

The argument has been removed and the version has now been bumped to 3.1.0-112-dev.

Let me know if it works. Thanks for the comment.

The option "--disable-perftools" has been removed from the configure script, and causes an error. It should be removed from the PKGBUILD file.
