This PKGBUILD has so many errors, I don't know where to begin, including missing pkgdesc, wrong installation paths, missing dependencies, mixing of Python 2 and 3 installations, etc.

Here's a IMHO better PKGBUILD file:

This also includes installation of the system service file as suggested by @gyscos.

Upstream pigpio now includes a systemd service file; could we use install it?

Here is a PKGBUILD that includes the fixes mentionned by scj, and this systemd service:

I also suggest adding a systemd service file for the pigpiod daemon.
I sent a PR upstream to have this in the officiel repository, but in the meantime the file itself could be added next to the PKGBUILD:

I confirm specifying `/usr` as the prefix results in a working installation, and more closely follows the usual Arch guidelines.

It would be better to just install the libs in the correct location to begin with;

make prefix=/usr DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

Hi peterstrapp,

The libraries that get installed from this git package don't locate themselves correctly, as per this git issue:

To correct it, would you consider adding the following command to your PKGBUILD, or something to similar? This way there are links located in the right location; without them, the pigpiod daemon will fail to load.

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libpigpio*.so /usr/lib/

@peterstrapp I've updatted the PKGBUILD for pigpio to fix a few warnings. If you're interested, here it is:
