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

Ugly hacky PKGBUILD here https://pastee.org/3smr3

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 (mirror.ifarchive.org) is trustworthy, updating the md5 and source path makes the build work and the interpreter seems OK.

Resolving mirror.ifarchive.org... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address “mirror.ifarchive.org”


To fix this, just change the address in the PKGBUILD to one of the following:
