This is a leftover from the debian build, where some distros like ubuntu 16.04 have broken python-dlib packages and which cause the installation to fail. I don't have an arch instance to test the installation, so feel free to propose changes.

Is there a reason why you are silently installing dlib inside this PKGBUILD instead of using either dlib or python-dlib-cuda from the AUR as depends? That would IMHO be 'cleaner' and avoid issues with improper config flags for dlib, as those packages handle them on the fly based on cpu flags, instead of using defaults as you do here.

As a temporary fix until I have the chance to fix it, you can remove the pip installation of click and pillow in the PKGBUILD. You can also uninstall those packages and reinstall them with the PKGBUILD as Howdy needs the versions listed in the PKGBUILD.

Edit: It shouldn't be an issue anymore with the newest PKGBUILD

Installation fails, conflict with packages python-pillow and python-click. Examples: howdy: /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/PIL/ exists in filesystem (owned by python-pillow) howdy: /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/click/ exists in filesystem (owned by python-click)
