I was sent to this forum by the Arch forums as I am trying Manjaro specifically. But being a newbie at Arch and Manjaro, first of all, sorry if this is not the right place to post. Could you then point me in the right direction?
I am getting an error at the end of makepkg run during an install of heimsal-aur.
The last few lines are:
rm -rf $backupdir; exit $rc
./whatis.texi:39: unknown command `def'
./whatis.texi:39: unknown command `xsub'
./whatis.texi:40: unknown command `global'
./whatis.texi:40: unknown command `let'
./whatis.texi:40: unknown command `xsub' (possibly involving @sub)
./win2k.texi:314: warning: @end should only appear at a line beginning
make[1]: *** [heimdal.info] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/michel/Documents/AUR/heimdal-aur/src/heimdal-1.5.2/doc'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...
I have no idea as to whether the problem is in my manjaro install, the package itself or an unsatisfied dependency. I have made sure that the dependencies in PKGBUILD were met.
The output from makepkg is enormous and I do not know where or what to start looking for.
Any help?
Thanks

Why do you want to compile it yourself ? Let Yaourt do the job and pull these missing dependencies:

yaourt -S heimdal-aur

Ah! Sorry, I had tried yaourt -S as well and got exactly the same error at the end (I presume) of the make phase.

Unfortunately this is a show stopper for my using Manjaro.

Could anyone point me in the direction of what my next step should be to resolve this. 

How can I identify the origin or meaning of this error?  Do I need contact the developer?

Any hint will be much appreciate before I go too far down another road!  :)

Thanks

I tried installing through aur and got the same error, so it seems to be a problem with the package, not your install. I don't know enough to help you out with the errors, just thought I'd let you know that the same error is being produced on my machine and it looks like other people are posting that they are getting the same error over at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/heimdal-aur/
 Sorry for not being able to help you further. Good luck.

OK, Thanks a lot.

I guess I will have to find a way of communicating with the dev.
