Please give it as much testing as you can.

As always, if you encounter problems building or using Emacs,
send a report to bug-gnu-emacs@gnu.org with full details
(if possible, use M-x report-emacs-bug).

Thanks for helping to test Emacs.

Hi Schnouki, I flagged this package some days ago, as the first prestest for 25.1 is already out. Let me know if you want me to lend you a hand with this.

@Javafant another solution is to add "--without-giflib" to the "./configure" line in this PKGBUILD. But anyway, the latest version (24.3.92) builds just fine against giflib 5.1.0 :)

Build seems to be broken with giflib 5.1.0. Downgrading giflib works

The latest version of imagemagick ( -- 2012/10/28) breaks an existing installation of emacs-pretest.
