PKG Version: 3.3.1-1

Source for package includes pkg-config template file (
(src )

Talking with upstream, this file was added by upstream maintainer in 2013 on request of Fedora maintainers.

Fedora maintainers alter the * file manually in their package building mechanism to produce a *.pc file
(src )

Debian creates and installs their own pc file for this package.
(src )

I have filed a bug report with upstream ( WRT the wxsqlite3.pc file not being created. Upstream maintainer mentioned that they are a Windows user and not familiar with autotools. I have offered to assist the upstream maintainer with populating the wxsqlite3 pkg-config file.

Currently Arch community package does nothing with wxsqlite3 pkg-config. There is no mechanism to properly detect wxsqlite3 installation without resorting to manually testing of files.

Until the issue is resolved upstream, I have attached a modified PKGBUILD file for building wxSqlite3. Ideas are "borrowed" from Fedora in manually manipulating the file to produce wxsqlite3.pc ( prepare function ). That file is then installed to the fakeroot directory in the package function.
   PKGBUILD (1.3 KiB)
This task depends upon

Upstream has modified the source to generate a pkg-config file.
Attached is updated PKGBUILD file to reflect these changes.
