package build utility
+1 Note -1
makepkg uses your current locale by default and does not unset it when building packages . If you wish to share your build output with others when seeking help or for other purposes, you may wish to run "LC_ALL=C makepkg" so your logs and output are not localized .
-A, --ignorearch Ignore a missing or incomplete arch field in the build script . This is for rebuilding packages from source when the PKGBUILD may be slightly outdated and not updated with an arch=( (Aqyourarch (Aq) field .
-c, --clean Clean up leftover work files and directories after a successful build .
--config <file> Use an alternate configuration file instead of the /etc/makepkg .conf default .
-d, --nodeps Do not perform any dependency checks . This will let you override and ignore any dependencies required . There is a good chance this option will break the build process if all of the dependencies are not installed .
-e, --noextract Do not extract source files or run the prepare() function (if present); use whatever source already exists in the $srcdir/ directory . This is handy if you want to go into $srcdir/ and manually patch or tweak code, then make a package out of the result . Keep in mind that creating a patch may be a better solution to allow others to use your PKGBUILD .
--verifysource For each source file in the source array of PKGBUILD, download the file if required and perform the integrity checks . No extraction or build is performed . Dependencies specified in the PKGBUILD will not be handled unless --syncdeps is used . Useful for performing subsequent offline builds .
-f, --force makepkg will not build a package if a built package already exists in the PKGDEST (set in makepkg.conf (5))directory, which may default to the current directory . This allows the built package to be overwritten .
-g, --geninteg For each source file in the source array of PKGBUILD, download the file if required and generate integrity checks . The integrity checks generated are determined by the checks present in the PKGBUILD, falling back to the value of the INTEGRITY_CHECK array in makepkg .conf(5) if these are absent This output can be redirected into your PKGBUILD for source validation using "makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD" .
--skipinteg Do not perform any integrity checks (checksum and PGP) on source files .
--skipchecksums Do not verify checksums of source files .
--skippgpcheck Do not verify PGP signatures of source files .
-h, --help Output syntax and command line options .
--holdver When using VCS sources ( PKGBUILD (5))any currently checked out source will not be updated to the latest revision .
-i, --install Install or upgrade the package after a successful build using pacman (8).
-L, --log Enable logging . This will use the tee program to send the output of each of the PKGBUILD functions to both the console and to a text file in the build directory named pkgbase -pkgver -pkgrel -arch -<function> .log . As mentioned above, the logs will be localized so you may want to set your locale accordingly if sharing the log output with others .
-m, --nocolor Disable color in output messages .
-o, --nobuild Download and extract files, run the prepare() function, but do not build them . Useful with the --noextract option if you wish to tweak the files in $srcdir/ before building .
-p <buildscript> Read the package script buildscript instead of the PKGBUILD default; see PKGBUILD (5). The buildscript must be located in the directory makepkg is called from .
-r, --rmdeps Upon successful build, remove any dependencies installed by makepkg during dependency auto -resolution and installation when using -s .
-R, --repackage Repackage contents of the package without rebuilding the package . This is useful if you forgot, for example, a dependency or install file in your PKGBUILD and the build itself will not change .
-s, --syncdeps Install missing dependencies using pacman . When build -time or run -time dependencies are not found, pacman will try to resolve them . If successful, the missing packages will be downloaded and installed .
-S, --source Do not actually build the package, but build a source -only tarball that does not include sources that can be fetched via a download URL . This is useful for passing a single tarball to another program such as a chroot, remote builder, or a tarball upload . Because integrity checks are verified, all source files of the package need to be present or downloadable .
-V, --version Display version information .
-C, --cleanbuild Remove the $srcdir before building the package .
--allsource Do not actually build the package, but build a source -only tarball that includes all sources, including those that are normally downloaded via makepkg . This is useful for passing a single tarball to another program such as a chroot or remote builder . It will also satisfy requirements of the GPL when distributing binary packages .
--check Run the check() function in the PKGBUILD, overriding the setting in makepkg.conf (5).
--noarchive Do not create the archive at the end of the build process . This can be useful to test the package() function or if your target distribution does not use pacman .
--nocheck Do not run the check() function in the PKGBUILD or handle the checkdepends .
--noprepare Do not run the prepare() function in the PKGBUILD .
--sign Sign the resulting package with gpg, overriding the setting in makepkg.conf (5).
--nosign Do not create a signature for the built package .
--key <key> Specify a key to use when signing packages, overriding the GPGKEY setting in makepkg.conf (5). If not specified in either location, the default key from the keyring will be used .
--noconfirm (Passed to pacman) Prevent pacman from waiting for user input before proceeding with operations .
--needed (Passed to pacman) Tell pacman not to reinstall a target if it is already up -to -date . (used with -i / --install ).
--asdeps (Passed to pacman) Install packages as non -explicitly installed (used with -i / --install ).
--noprogressbar (Passed to pacman) Prevent pacman from displaying a progress bar; useful if you are redirecting makepkg output to file .
--packagelist List the package filenames that would be produced without building . Listed package filenames include PKGDEST and PKGEXT .
--printsrcinfo Generate and print the SRCINFO file to stdout .
PACMAN The command that will be used to check for missing dependencies and to install and remove packages . Pacman -Qq , -Rns , -S , -T ,and -U operations must be supported by this command . If the variable is not set or empty, makepkg will fall back to .
