zorun: Thanks for the suggestions, will include them in the updated package later.

I think it would be nice to copy README and INSTALL to something like /usr/share/doc/freesynd.

Please read the guidelines for creating packages:

Here is an updated and more readable PKGBUILD that installs it to /usr:
