I see that the package updated in the repo and the answer was to add 
-D systemdsystemunitdir=no option.

I was trying to contribute to the distro but i am not used to packaging
and sending patches in email workflow and I learned bash/shell scripting

I have question regarding to the abs or abs-libre: is packages built
after each git commit and in the case of some packages that need to be
rebuilt to link to newer libraries did changing package version or
adding suffix enough to make it rebuild (e.g: gimp, blender, .... etc)?
