since this morning, while fakexrandr is enabled Cinnamon crashes. If anyone tells me how to take the needed logs i can do it.

Also, add the following to prepare()

# Add missing header
sed -i -r 's,#include <string.h>,&\n#include <sys/stat.h>,' libXrandr.c

I solved the binary install problem (see @gros comment) by replacing "make install" by:
mkdir -p "$pkgdir/usr/bin"
make PREFIX="$pkgdir/usr" install

@pschmitt please update the PKGBUILD accordingly.
