This is an issue with acestream-engine.

What worked for me:

Temporary fix: Don't touch package, it's bulding ok. Instead simply install m2crypto 0.23. Version 0.24 might work, too.
pacman -U

If you are having issues with openssl:

ln -sf /usr/lib/ /opt/acestream/lib/

After a recent system upgrade acestream-launcher stopped working. This is what I get:

Acestream engine running.

The openSSL issue has been reported to acestream-engine package.

temporary workaround solves the problem, but... (((
It's a crutch

Somehow this asks for fakeroot and I have no idea why?
