Fixed. That was a remnant from way back, I don't even remember when I first used it as a quick "hack" but it seems to have lingered in my PKGBUILDS.

Went around my other packages fixing the same problem and at the same time update the checksum function to be more in line with what other packages use.

Please do not set the PKGEXT in the PKGBUILD, the appropriate place for this is in your makepkg.conf rather than overriding user choices!

Users are expected to know how makepkg.conf works, and if need be, to read the makepkg page on the Arch Wiki (which mentions changing PKGEXT under "tips and tricks").

I think there is a small improvement to be made as the current PKGBUILD installs the dictionarie with executable permissions. Perhaps you could replace the line

install -Dm755 hyph_en_US.dic ${pkgdir}/usr/share/hyphen/hyph_en_US.dic


install -dm755 $pkgdir/usr/share/hyphen
install -m644 hyph_en_US.dic ${pkgdir}/usr/share/hyphen

Which is how hunspell-en-us seems to do it. And then of course, up the pkgrel number.
