Now this PKGBuild is a splitpackage. One for julia and one for the documentation. Since the doc needs to be built too (Sourcefiles in a finished package isn't pretty, so I removed them completly for julia package).
The Doc is available in a lot of formats. I decided to add 4 of them to the PKGBuild (pdf, info, man and html files)

Building the doc source introduces some makedepends, but no real depends. But they're in case of the texlive packages everything else but small. And one package is just on AUR.
So the doc package build is disabled by default. It will be created, but it's empty.

If someone wants the doc he just needs to remove the # before the second makedepends line, the make calls and before the lines in the julia-doc package function.

The best would be, if the repo julia package could provide the generated docs.
Or I could upload the package I created if someone can name an uploader that allows binaries and isn't crappy.

@pwl Just before I read your comment, I've filled a bug report at Community Julia package about that same issue [] making the same suggestion of yours.

There is a bug[1] (or just incompatibility) that prevents julia profiler to work with llvm 3.4. With llvm 3.3 the profiler works just fine, but the build time is significantly increased as julia has to build llvm 3.3 from scratch each time it is installed. So I suggest setting USE_SYSTEM_LLVM=0 if you want to avoid this (and possibly other) bugs in future.

Although not heavily tested, Julia seems to be working ok with USE_SYSTEM_LLVM=1 (LLVM 3.4).

Thanks for the info. Will upload an updated PKGBuild asap (which can take a few hours, as I'm not at home and not having an arch system at hand)

There are a few changes in julia/master:
1) it looks like they've fixed the incompatibility with LLVM 3.4, so the system one could be used once again (although I hadn't done extensive testing)
2) they have dropped out the support for system Rmath, now there's only Rmath-julia (and its building is turned on as of yesterday)
3) readline is no longer needed since now julia has her own implementation of REPL

Here [1] you can find the updated PKGBUILD.

The PKGBUILD in its current form installs julia version 0.3.0-prerelease+2146.

I managed to build julia 0.2.1 with this PKGBUILD:
I used the following patches:

I managed to build julia 0.2.1 with this PKGBUILD:
I used the following patch for readline: (I'm sorry, pastebin apparently removed the trailing newline).

DiegoAscanio commented on 2014-03-13 03:03

TrialnError, one strange thing, is that my build only worked when I checked out the entire repo and then pointed it to v0.2.1 tag.

When i checked out directly this tag, the build broke

So, it's not so stable as I suposed it was...

Thanks for the sugestion!
