> My comments on this situation and your PKGBUILD:
> 1st - The PKGBUILD has CRLF. You need to format it to Unix (use 'dos2unix'
> command)
> 2nd - Your command line to get version doesn't seem to be correct.
> 'Main.c' reports current version 0.8, just like 'git shortlog' history
> shows. But you've got '1' from what doesn't look to be a version. Please
> review that.
> 3rd - Not the main issue, but remember to set arch (don't use 'any')
> 4th - Makefile is copying files to directly to '/etc' and '/usr', instead
> of allowing fakeroot to work with a variable like $(DESTDIR) before that
> path. That's an upstream bug, that can be fixed with the attached patch
> 5th - Makefile tries to copy to directories without making sure they
> exist. Again, upstream bug fixed with my patch.
> My suggestion is to fix yourself the first 3 issues and file a bug report
> for the last 2.

Now with attachment.
