also please adopt https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=646658 from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=436969 which really helps with converting some PDFs

Source is broken. http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/repo/pkgs/poster/poster.tar.bz2/04b421e2ce516a44b6c5a9a092dfa623/poster.tar.bz2 seems okay.

You have pkgname and pkgver followed by a whitespace. That breaks makepkg from pacman 4.0, so please update.

install -D -m644 $pkgname.1 $startdir/pkg/usr/man/man1/$pkgname.1
should be:
