can you please re-enable Static Libraries (--enable-shared --enable-static )

Also, you may want to rename/remove[ver] and wayland-egl.pc. As they conflict with mesa.

I'm getting the following error when trying to build weston-git with wayland-git installed (in a clean chroot):

/usr/bin/wayland-scanner: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It seems it needs libxml2 as dependency.
wayland in [extra] does depend on it, too.

I've unflagged the package as out of date as it still builds correctly.

namcap tells me that expat is not only needed at buildtime, but also at runtime.

I'm in agreement with Scimmia. If you install a git package, you should follow it to know when it's suitable to update it. The package still builds fine and the version automatically updates when you build it.

It wouldn't take long, but it would be useless. It would help some users of AUR helpers, but it would simply annoy other users of those same helpers because the helpers would insist on needing a rebuild when you may not want one.

If you're going to build from git master, step up and take some responsibility for your own system.

If you use a large number of unsupported software a certain "unsupported helper program" can help you keep track of things. Anyway, that's up to the user to use whatever they want to issue package upgrades. BTW, It's not too hard and doesn't take too long to update the pkgbuild and re-upload it to the AUR. I could have had it done by the end of my typing this message.

You can believe whatever you want, but if you're using a git package, you should be paying attention to upstream and rebuilding when you decide to, not just relying on an unsupported helper program to tell you what to do.

i believe this pacakge as well as any git package on the AUR should be updated regularly to make sure the users get notified of new versions of git software if they are using yaourt or something else to upgrade with.
