Problem installing libeb

yay -S goldendict-git fails because libeb installation fails due to

.cache/yay/libeb/PKGBUILD: line 41: autoupdate: command not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
 -> error making: libeb

What’s the solution?

You need to install the base-devel group before dealing with AUR pkgbuilds

sudo pacman -S base-devel --needed

$ which autoupdate
$ LANG=C pacman -Qo /usr/sbin/autoupdate
/usr/bin/autoupdate is owned by autoconf 2.71-1

btw, I’ve corrected category and title
