## Building

When building official distro packages the `BUILDTOOLVER` needs to be set to the
exact label of the release package in order to allow to detect the exactly used
devtools version. This is required for reproducible builds to fetch the according
files like `makepkg.conf`.

```sh
BUILDTOOLVER="${pkgver}-${pkgrel}-${arch}" make all
```
