Package is currently broken for me.

Changing the source to and updating the md5sums fixes this.

In addition to v5.2.2 being released, util-linux 2.30 removed the
"Provides: util-linux-ng" tag and cryptmount's runtime dependency needs to be updated.

Furthermore, I suggest exchanging the role of $pkgver and $_pkgver in the PKGBUILD.

Made Jonathan's proposed change.

Cryptmount's configure script defaults installation to /usr/sbin which appears to be a no longer valid install path in Arch ( ).

I recommend adding the --sbindir= flag when running the configure script to force installation into /usr/bin.

For example:

build() {
cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --sbindir=/usr/bin

Please mark /etc/cryptmount/cmtab as a backup file, it's really annoying that it's lost after every update...

Updated to v4.1. There are still a couple of NAMCAP warnings to fix when I get a chance.
