The links for the previous comments seem to be dead. I made some edits to the PKGBUILD (with minimal knowledge of the actual package). But it seems to work for me, so sharing it here. Use at your own risk and please comment if you see something wrong with it.

lixo.c is gone and aliases.scm has been moved to a subdirectory.

See for a working PKGBUILD.

lixo.c no longer exists, making prepare function fail.

Subdirectory "$_gitname"/femto, referenced in three functions, does no longer exist. See commit 0c93092628265b85fdb829a12bc3fcc94bf762b6 four days ago.
