Found a howto on Gambas-One which also appears on the Gambas Wiki. Tried to respond on Gambas-One but I am not smart enough to figure out the whole Gambas Wiki vs Gambas-One Forums vs Gambas-One the website so I will post here and maybe someone can make use of the information.
The directions on Gambas-One and Gambas Wiki no longer work because abs has been deprecated and no longer exists including the web-side infrastructure to make it work.
Here is what worked for me on a ROCKPro64, will be copying the packages to a PineBook Pro later today after I destroy the debian install on that (which by-the-way gambas3 installs from SID and works fine but I am an Arch user)
Build Gambas on Arch (Mangaro) ARM for ROCKPro64 and PineBook Pro
https://wordpress.gambas.one/2017/01/03/install-gambas-on-arch-linux-arm/ (partly depricated)
Install Base development files:
sudo pacman -S base-devel
sudo pacman -S asp
Retrieve the PKGBUID:
asp checkout gambas3
replace "arch=('x86_64')" with "arch=('aarch64')"
Install dependencies (list is at Ref #3 but remove qt4 and add gmime3):
sudo pacman -S --needed alure autoconf automake bzip2 coreutils curl dbus gcc gdk-pixbuf2 git glew glib2 gmime gmime3 gsl gst-plugins-base gstreamer gtk2 gtk3 gtkglext imlib2 intltool libffi libgnome-keyring libmariadbclient librsvg libsm libxcursor libxml2 libxslt libxtst mariadb make mesa ncurses pcre pkg-config poppler-glib postgresql postgresql-libs qt5-svg qt5-webkit qt5-x11extras sdl2 sdl2_gfx sdl2_image sdl2_mixer sdl2_net sdl2_ttf sdl_mixer sdl_ttf smpeg sqlite unixodbc v4l-utils xdg-utils zlib
Make the packages in the same dir as PKGBUILD:
(took 1 hour and 20 minutes on ROCKPro64 4GB RAM)
Install packages: sudo pacman -U *.xz
Enjoy Gambas on ARM
