new install: makepkg is a fork bomb

running makepkg forks hundreds of `/usr/bin/bash /usr/bin/makepkg` a second. The processes are long lived. It will continue to fork-bomb until I ctrl-c.

The app gives no output. behavior is the same if I run it in a directory with a PKGBUILD file or not.

I've tried a few of the flags like --check or --Log. No change.

fresh OS install. First time trying a AUR build. Here is my makepkg.conf:

CFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe -fno-plt"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
RUSTFLAGS="-C opt-level=2 -C target-cpu=native"
MAKEFLAGS="-j8"
PKGEXT='.pkg.tar' makepkg

rurnning a strace -f generate 15M of output in 2 seconds.

Here are the first 5K lines of the strace :

Can you share the PKGBUILD you are trying to build?

Re: new install: makepkg is a fork bomb

PKGEXT='.pkg.tar' makepkg

Do you really have makepkg.conf calling makepkg recursively?

Re: new install: makepkg is a fork bomb

yes. I copied that from section 3.5 of this guide: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/makepkg
But I wasn't paying close enough attention. That line is meant for the cmd-line, not the .conf file.

fixed
