Couple of things with this PKGBUILD:

  • Since this is a standard, non-VCS package, it should not provide itself nor conflict with the VCS package.
  • The source name should be unique, something like $pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz.
  • This package is missing readline and bc as dependencies.

I'll post a patch you can use soon, thanks for your time!

Thank you for the offer but we all put a lot a lot of effort writing and updating these PKGBUILDs to just give up ownership to the first person that has a problem with the package. What is the nature of your problem? I always build and test all my packages, in fact I just upgraded and built this one. No problem at all. Next time, instead of asking for ownership, an actual description of the problem may be helpful.
