Notes: Can be summarized in one Template:App entry (Discuss in Talk:Pacbuilder#)

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. Install pacbuilder-svnAUR from the AUR.


To see actual CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS run:

pacbuilder --gccinfo

Most used command:

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


pacbuilder -Sbkvn $packagename

Run pacbuilder -h to show a list of all options along with a description.
