There is a serious, critical regression in AVR-gcc versions 11 and above (see Versions up to 10.1.0 are not affected. The regression (randomly) prevents from compiling Arduino sketches but also local AVR-based projects, as the compiler crashes with an internal error, as described in the supplied link.

The bug has been left unfixed for about one year and is a real showstopper. A possible solution would be to cap avr-gcc to version 10.1.0 but it requires packaging that version instead of 12.x.y and updating all packages that depend on it.

Can it be done?

Thanks in advance.

Not going to happen. That's not how Arch works. It's *clearly* an upstream issue and needs to be fixed there.
