Currently gnome-builder fails to start with “Builder requires
libgit2-glib with SSH support” and checking with

#include <iostream>
#include <git2.h>

using namespace std;

int main() {
const int f = git_libgit2_features();
cout << (f & GIT_FEATURE_SSH) << endl;
return 0;

gives 0, so it seems SSH support is disabled. Right? Looking at the CMakeLists,
SSH support is enabled by default and the PGKBUILD does not deactivate it.

What's going on? :D
This task depends upon

It's your libgit2 you need to check, not libgit2-glib.

It's complaining about libgit2-glib, and libgit2 in Extra does seem to be linked to libssh

git_libgit2_features is a libgit2 function. The libgit2-glib equivalent would be ggit_get_features, but that simply passes through to git_libgit2_features.

The problem seems to arise from within Julia ( On my system libgit2 is /usr/lib/julia/ and not the one from this very package in /usr/lib.
