How to create an acceptable Vim PKGBUILD for the OBS


I decided to get my Vim OBS repo to also build an Arch package for the latest Vim. The problem is that my PKGBUILD is failing due to my lack of understanding of the file structure used by PKGBUILDs in the OBS. This is my present PKGBUILD:

# Maintainer: Peter Mattern <pmattern at arcor dot de>

# Interpreters are handled by value "dynamic" of configure options
# '--enable-<language>interp' and can thus be chosen at runtime by installing appropriate
# packages. Counterpart of Vim packages '-python3' no longer needed, IMHO.

pkgdesc="Vim the editor. CLI version and GTK2 GUI providing majority of features."
arch=("i686" "x86_64")
depends=("gtk2" "hicolor-icon-theme" "gtk-update-icon-cache" "desktop-file-utils")
optdepends=("lua: Lua interpreter" "perl: Perl interpreter" "python: Python 3 interpreter"
            "python2: Python 2 interpreter" "ruby: Ruby interpreter")
makedepends=("lua" "python" "python2" "ruby")
provides=("gvim" "xxd" "vim-runtime")
conflicts=("vim-minimal-git" "vim-git"
           "vim-minimal" "vim" "vim-python3" "gvim" "gvim-python3")

prepare() {

    # set global configuration files to /etc/[g]vimrc
    sed -i 's|^.*\(#define SYS_.*VIMRC_FILE.*"\) .*$|\1|' $_pkgname/src/feature.h


build() {

    cd $_pkgname
    ./configure \
      --enable-fail-if-missing \
      --with-compiledby='Arch Linux AUR' \
      --prefix=/usr \
      --enable-gui=gtk2 \
      --with-features=huge \
      --enable-cscope \
      --enable-multibyte \
      --enable-perlinterp=dynamic \
      --enable-pythoninterp=dynamic \
      --enable-python3interp=dynamic \
      --enable-rubyinterp=dynamic \


package() {

    # actual installation
    cd $_pkgname
    make DESTDIR=$pkgdir install

    # desktop entry file and corresponding icon
    install -D -m644 ../gvim.desktop      $pkgdir/usr/share/applications/gvim.desktop
    install -D -m644 runtime/vim48x48.png $pkgdir/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/gvim.png

    # remove ex/view and man pages (normally provided by package 'vi' on Arch Linux)
    cd $pkgdir/usr/bin ; rm ex view
    find $pkgdir/usr/share/man -type d -name 'man1' 2>/dev/null | \
      while read _mandir; do
        cd ${_mandir}
        rm -f ex.1 view.1

    # add license
    install -D -m644 $srcdir/$_pkgname/runtime/doc/uganda.txt \

this works fine under Arch Linux itself, but in the OBS it returns errors like:

   88s] ==> Starting prepare()...
   88s] sed: can't read vim/src/feature.h: No such file or directory
   88s] ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
   88s]     Aborting...
   88s] failed to prepare sources

and I really just don’t know how to rewrite this PKGBUILD so it is compatible with the OBS.

Thanks for your time,
