Hi, I'm trying to build a package (upslug2), which is in the AUR. On attempting to build via ABS, this fails with the errors:
==> Starting make... PKGBUILD: line 32: autoreconf: command not found PKGBUILD: line 33: ./configure: No such file or directory make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop. ==> ERROR: Build Failed.
I get similar problems if I try to do a manual build from source ie. 'autoreconf' is not found.
I definitely have 'autotools' installed, which I believe should include 'autoreconf.' Any ideas where I'm going wrong please?

pacman -Qo /usr/bin/autoreconf error: failed to read file '/usr/bin/autoreconf': No such file or directory
I have removed and reinstalled autotools (xorg-util-macros) and I still get the above error. I can't see why it doesn't apparently install
OK, sorry for not reading more carefully, so the problem was the duff information about which package 'autoreconf' could be found in. Thanks for your help
If you're going to be building software in Arch, which obviously you are, install the whole group base-devel. It has the entire build foundation:
pacman -S base-devel
