Details

The info documentation for NASM and the RDOFF tools are not included in the nasm package, and should be.

It looks to me like the only easy way to install the info docs is to make ‘doc’ (or ‘everything’) and ‘install_doc’ (or ‘install_everything’), which also builds and installs documentation in other formats. This would require makedepends=(groff ghostscript) (the documentation build fails unless ghostscript(ps2pdf) or texlive-bin(pstopdf) is installed; configure looks for nroff, but I'm not sure groff is really needed), and some cleanup to move /usr/doc to /usr/share/doc. See the attached patch.

With the attached patch, namcap suggests to split out a docs package; I'll look up how to do that next.
This task depends upon

My patch also doesn't install the info files properly; improved patch to follow.

if the documentation is more than 50% from the actually size i guess you might want to add it in a separate package

pkgbase=nasm
pkgname=(nasm nasm-docs)

package_nams-docs(){

make install_doc

}

note, the above was just an example, you actually need more things in package function

I have attached a corrected patch to this comment. This PKGBUILD builds the info docs only, and installs them manually for now, so ghostscript is not needed as a makedep. It requires the attached nasm.install, which is equivalent to the output of ‘sed -e '/^filelist=/s/sed/nasm/' /var/abs/core/sed/sed.install’.

namcap reported 68%.

I'm just installing the info docs for now, because the other formats are redundant. Do you want a split -docs package? (I can use kdebase as an example.)

The attached PKGBUILD produces a split -docs package. It also fixes the license string (now BSD), and installs the LICENSE file in the usual Arch location.
   PKGBUILD (1.5 KiB)
