Some notes:

  • The .install script incorrectly tells users to copy .pk4 files to /usr/share/dhewm3. The correct path is /usr/share/dhewm3/base/

  • PKGBUILD should create that directory automatically (and d3xp too). Now users need to do that manually

  • The game initially complained that it couldn't find default.cfg file and refused to run. I had to manually extract it from pak000.pk4 package, and place it to ~/.config/dhewm3/base/ (using doom3-data-steam for data files)

Yes, doom3-data should be optional. For example I launch the game with dhewm3 +set fs_basepath /data/games/doom3 so I don't need this package.

I believe doom3-data should be an optional dependency because the user might have an already patched doom3 installation and it also should be renamed to doom3-patch-data or something similar to better convey what it does.
