Description: The installed pkg-config file contains an include difrectory entry for the non-existent folder /usr/lib/pgm-5.2/include. This can cause cmake to fail when building libraries which depend libpgm (may only come up transitively, see below).

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

I encountered this error while building the ignition-transport package from AUR. ignition-transport depends on zeromq which, in turn, depends on libpgm. When cmake is configuring the build environment for ignition-transport the following output is observed

CMake Error in src/CMakeLists.txt:
Imported target "ZeroMQ::ZeroMQ" includes non-existent path


in its INTERFACE_INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES. Possible reasons include:

* The path was deleted, renamed, or moved to another location.

* An install or uninstall procedure did not complete successfully.

* The installation package was faulty and references files it does not

Upon inspection "/usr/lib/pgm-5.2/include" comes from /usr/lib/pkgconfig/openpgm-5.2.pc which contains this line

Cflags: -I${includedir}/pgm-5.2 -I${libdir}/pgm-5.2/include

Removing the second -I term will resolve the error that cmake reports.

Steps to reproduce: Install libpgm
This task depends upon

Is there any chance the maintainer could take a look at this? The issue has been open for 7 months now and it it'll only take a minute to fix.

Seconding the request for the maintainer to take a look. This seems like a long-standing issue. (I encountered this when trying to build ignition-transport. Similar to

I am also running into this issue while trying to fix a AUR package called xeus. After looking into the github page for openpgm, abd it looks like the project is active but, a release has not occurred in 6 years!? ( ) This problem has a fix in upstream already ( ) but the lack of releases have prevented it from being pushed down to arch. Could we have this bug fix patched in instead of waiting around for upstream to release?

I have attached an updated PKGBUILD and .patch file that will resolve the issue. I have posted on the issue tracker for upstream prodding for a new release. Since no timeline exists for when that might occur, if ever, it seems like pulling in this change is the only option.
