New md5sum is 6f4211c9180c75214cda1020c7db2629
The tar extracts to 2.43d/ , the file to download is still the same though.

Ugly hacky PKGBUILD here

Looks like the upstream source tarball has changed.

The current PKGBUILD has the right file URL but the md5sum is different; opening up the tarball it looks like the directory name is slightly different too (frotz/src/frotz-2.43 (original) vs frotz/src/frotz-2.43d (current)).

Assuming the upstream source ( is trustworthy, updating the md5 and source path makes the build work and the interpreter seems OK.
