Adopted, added /usr/share/doc/pcal/ dir with examples, html/cgi interface, helper scripts.

Can we install the example calendars somewhere?

In Ubuntu they are installed into '/usr/share/doc/pcal/examples/'.

Not finding them in pacman -Ql, I wrote my own, then an Ubuntu user told me that they already exist in the source package.

Adopted and fixed.

There's still an issue with the license though, I haven't been able to find the license used (even by grepping the sources or searching their website)

Package wont build. The "quick fix" from bryan is the same PKGBUILD with the line for the license removed. I couldn't find any references in the source to a license, so maybe it's ok. But it wont make the package work.

Doing a 'yaourt -S pcal' gives:

==> Validating source files with md5sums...
pcal-4.11.0.tgz ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build pcal.

Doing 'yaourt -G pcal' brings a PKGBUILD with md5sums=('0ed7e9bec81fe3bdd62f8af283bef704') and downloading by hand from sourceforge brings a pcal-4.11.0.tgz with the same md5sum. However the pcal-4.11.0.tgz brought by 'yaourt -S pcal' has md5um 'e52823e03022fa912bbc556f74c92e15' ... And I don't understand why is that.

Anyway, building with makepkg (the PKGBUILD with the right md5sum) gives this error:

I have no 'compress' utility in my system nor couldn't find any by doing 'yaourt -Ss compress'
