Packer is in community now:

Could you change the binary path, conflicts, and package name to "packer" to match?

The esx5_HostKeyCallback.patch is no longer required as it's on master now

I flagged the package out of date as it appears the package has not been updated in almost a year and is currently broken.

Looking at it again this morning, I'm not quite sure why I made some of those choices. I definitely agree with your comment about prepare(), there is no reason at all to remove it.

Anyway, thanks for adding the one useful line!

Good catch. It's a good idea to remove the existing build directory. I've added an rm to prepare(). Your PKGBUILD seems to have a lot of added noise to accomplish this small task. Is there a reason you removed prepare()? It's my understanding that the reason we have separate prepare and build functions is so that we can makepkg -o to make modifications by hand, then run makepkg -e to build with our modifications.

I was having trouble getting this to work correctly with pacaur after the first build (main problem was the mv in prepare() when not building from a completely clean directory), so I made a few changes to the PKGBUILD. If you want to incorporate them, they are at
