I see that the PKGBUILD for Avahi deliberatelly disables the building of avahi-autoipd, the daemon tha configures an local-link IP address.

Why is that?... This daemon can be quite usefull, and it doesn't do harm if it's enabled.
This task depends upon

I'll look into this - I adopted this package as an orphan, and it seems JGC was the one who originally disabled support for it quite a while ago. I'll bug him to see why.

I've talked with JGC and it seems he doesn't have any objections to enabling it. I'll turn it on and play around a bit, then probably upload a new pkg in the next couple of days

I've been waiting on the new avahi to include this, but it's dependent on the development dbus which doesn't seem to be moving to stable any time soon, and hence won't be moving into our repos until that time. I think I'll just rebuild the current avahi version to have this change, and post it tonight.

Aw crap - we're currently working on getting qt4 into the repos, and as such I can't touch avahi at the moment. I'll try to get autoipd into the version being rebuilt against our newly-coming qt3 package.

OK, the version of avahi built against qt4, currently in testing, has autoipd enabled.
