Pacbuilder is a small but powerful script to automatically recompile the whole system, repos or just a single package (with or without its dependencies). This is quite useful once you have edited /etc/makepkg.conf with some customized CFLAGS.

See Makepkg - Architecture, compile flags for more about specifying CFLAGS.

To see actual CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS run:

pacbuilder --gccinfo


Most used command:

pacbuilder --builddeps --keepdeps --verbose --noconfirm --install $packagename

or

pacbuilder -Sbkvn $packagename
