Hello, I can't seem to use it coz I guess this package lacks the GUI, isn't it?

Another alternative to compile OSSIM with plugings, but I get errors.

I appreciate any help.

Please update this package. If you don't have the time or want to maintain it, I would gladly take over.

@mbostwick and @arsgeografica, I've made the changes but I get an error with the new version of GDAL 2.0.0. I created a ticket of the error in the official site of OSSIM.

This package should not include make or gcc as those are assumed for aur packages..This also appears to be missing liblas

Please update or abandon so this can be fixed. - for the patch - for updated build file

Building on a fresh (virtualized) install of Arch, I had to do two things to get it compile and install:

1) Install podofo, openvc, qt4, otherwise cmake would bail out
2a) Add cmake flag -DINSTALL_LIBRARY_DIR=/usr/lib to prevent installing in /usr/lib64 which pacman does not like
2b) Patch ossim-1.8.18/ossim_package_support/cmake/CMakeLists.txt to install ossim.pc in /usr/lib instead of /usr/lib64:

Somewhere in the configuration, ossimPredator spits a bzip2 warning (probably harmless):
