Alright, so I wanted to update this package bit it seems upstream is pretty broken. After quite a bit of messing around to get the package to build at all, the resulting package doesn't run either. The guy who wrote the software lives on Ubuntu and just hardcoded[1] the path for the libraries.

This is patchable in the PKGBUILD but is likely going to be a mess and should definitely be fixed upstream. I'd have to make a PR for that and make sure nothing else is broken.

If anyone else wants to step in, please do so. I am not using this package right now so I'd be A-OK to transfer the package ownership to someone else.
