I tried to compile a pkg twice with different configurations.
The second time I try srcpac errors:

==> ERROR: A package has already been built. (use -f to overwrite)

srcpac -Sbf or -Sfb does not work.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
Name : srcpac
Version : 0.10.4-1

Steps to reproduce:
compile the same pkg twice
This task depends upon

I cannot reproduce this. Also, the -f option is for pacman (eg. conflicting files)

I can :D

I think it's because


should be

MAKEPKGOPTS="-c -s -f"

thanks for fixing all the bugs and feature requests I had recently so fast!

That option is useless because the script removes the build dir after the makepkg call in each cases (build fails or build success)

Well I've set a custom PKGDEST in in /etc/makepkg.conf thus the pkg is not in the builddir and is not removed after build.

Also I like the idea of keeping the pkg.
Maybe add a switch to keep it somewhere?
You could use it as a local repo for pacman.

But it's too early in the morning now. I'm on the way for easter-holiday.

If the build success, the script copies the package in the pacman cache, then delete the build dir.
Ok, I know how to reproduce this now :)
