BSP Build fails if I configure RTEMS to enable
RTEMS TESTER AND RUN as mentioned in:


[varodek at varodek home]$ cd ~/development/rtems/kernel[varodek at varodek
kernel]$ mkdir erc32 && cd erc32

[varodek at varodek erc32]$ /home/varodek/development/rtems/kernel/rtems/configure
--prefix=/home/varodek/development/rtems/5 --enable-maintainer-mode
--target=sparc-rtems5 --enable-rtemsbsp=erc32 *--enable-tests*
--enable-posix --disable-networking
Build fails:

The *pax* package is not installed by default in Arch Linux. Moreover it is
also not present in its official repository. We need to clone, build and
install it from Arch User Repository (AUR).
This thing is missing in the documentation of host setup for Arch Linux at:
The details of my OS:
    OS: Linux
    Kernel Version: 4.20.3-arch1-1-ARCH
    Distribution: Arch Linux
    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz
