Cannot build Nautilus from source with Gnome Builder (Flatpak)

This may not be the location to raise this…

I’m trying to use Gnome Builder to build Nautilus from scratch. Most other projects are fine, but Nautilus fails on a dependency:

Building module gnome-autoar in /home/steve/.var/app/org.gnome.Builder/cache/gnome-builder/flatpak-builder/build/gnome-autoar-13
Already on 'master'
Your branch is up to date with 'master'.
Error: module gnome-autoar: Can't find autogen, or bootstrap

I’m running Gnome Builder through flatpak, so it appears to me that this is a missing tool dependency in the flatpak of Gnome Builder. Is there a way I can add this into the dependencies (it is available in the host system)?

That all said, if I open gnome-autoar directly it builds fine in gnome builder.

Hi! This is a perfectly good place to ask for help. Our chat channel would be another option. Either is fine.

This is fixed by the following commit:

I recommend you to rebase your branch on the upstream master branch. If that’s not an option for you, you can update the flatpak manifest according with the changes in that commit.

I was on the gnome-40 branch, hence the problem. Thanks!
