Beware, this package takes about 52GB to build but only 14GB to install. It has to grab the 6GB tar from Altera's site, extract it to a bunch of files adding up to 6GB, then uncompresses those to a 14GB directory, which is then copied (another 14GB), and then packaged up (another 14GB). I recommend building the package manually instead of using a helper if you are low on space so you can remove old files along the way.

If anyone has any better ways to preserve space while building this, let me know.

- Updated to
- Updated freetype2 link
- Added modelsim-ae.desktop and _modelsimver option for easier switching if needed
- Restructured PKGBUILD to better reflect proper workflow: prepare(): patching, package(): combine all files together. This results in easier resuming or skipping of extraction steps (like if you are using this PKGBUILD to install a different edition of Quartus/ModelSim). Before, you would always have to rerun the script if you failed/aborted the build process which mean running extraction again. Now, this step can be skipped with '-e' if you've already done it once.

I'm currently rather time limited. Anyone willing to become Co-Maintainer?

please update pkgbuild

Two things to get this working:
1. Working url for lib32-freetype2, same md5sum:

2. Either install `lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs` yourself from aur or add it as a depend.

By the way, the new Quartus Prime Lite 15.1 (new name for web edition) works using these same hacks:

You will also need to update the pkgver to if you go for the new Prime.
