Title says it all, trying to globally disable the tests from ABS compiling, gentoo does it internally in portage as default,is there anything in arch to do the same or is it a case of editing each PKGBUILD with the appropriate configure option?
Any help or hints appreciated

aha ! do you mean the check() function and --check/--nocheck in makepkg ?
eh ? the options array is OPTIONS=(strip docs libtool emptydirs zipman purge !upx) from http://www.archlinux.org/pacman/makepkg.conf.5.html none of which will ( i think ! ) stop the extensive test suits in GCC libtool and the rest i have been through https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Cr … 9_function and http://www.archlinux.org/pacman/makepkg.8.html with a fine tooth comb cant find anything that reference the after compilation test suites.
damnit ! it was the check function that i mentioned before, controlled by the check/!check switch in makepkg.conf or supplied via command line to makepkg.
For a change the docs are as clear as mud on this
Thank you falconindy
