Building mpv-git from AUR recently throws an error about ld not able to find -lEGL & -lGL. Downgrading nvidia-340xx-utils to 340.102.1 works just fine. Several changes have happenend recently with the nvidia-340xx-utils packaging, can't really tell what's causing this.

Attaching mpv-git makepkg logs for both nvidia-340xx-utils versions 340.102-1 & 340.102-5.

This task depends upon

Missing 'usr/bin/ldconfig -r .' in nvidia-340xx-utils.install/304 (lib32 also)

It's not about a missing ldconfig line or something like that.

The current package is completely unsuitable for compiling. The development symlinks are in /usr/lib/nvidia while mesa that contains the .pc files doesn't specify the linker path, so gcc/ld will never find the libraries.

you should be able to install mesa/mesa-libgl alongside nvidia-340xx-utils package

Thanks, will try and report back as soon as my kernel build is finished. It's a bit confusing though, I always looked at mesa & nvidia as mutually exclusive (Xorg driver-wise).

Installed mesa-libgl, but that resulted in exactly the same error when compiling mpv-git. Based on the comment from Jan de Groot and some testing, I have a PKGBUILD for nvidia-340xx-utils 340.102-5 that works just fine for compilation:

The PKGBUILD differs with the current official one from extra on 3 points:
(1) re-adds symlinks in /usr/lib to /usr/lib/nvidia as 340.102-1 did;
(2) adds nvidia-utils to provides (which fixes[0]=2&string=nvidia-340xx-utils); and
(3) runs create_links before creating /etc/ (to silence readelf complaining about /etc/ not being a regular file).

(1) it will break multigpu (optimus/bumblebee) system
(2) fixed soon
(3) only a cosmetic change

Finally got things working. After installing nvidia-340xx-utils & mesa (both from testing) things are back to normal. Thanks for your response.
