@Vorbote, unrar is available in the official Extra repo:

rar & unrar cannot be packaged together due to licensing requirements.

Hi, would you mind adding unrar to the package? (It is already provided by upstream).

And add this to the PKGBUILD:

conflicts=('rar-beta' 'unrar')
provides=('rar-beta' 'unrar')

Upgraded to version 5.5.0. Replaced md5sums with sha512sums for enhanced security.

Remove rarlinux-x64-5.4.0.tar.gz from your source cache to force a new, fresh download.

Just faced a problem on the checksum:

Package has been disowned, someone who wants to update and maintain it can take ownership now.

@gloriouseggroll please don't flag an aur package out of date when its not!
just post a message to update PKGBUILD if there's a problem with the build
the latest rar is 5.4.0 on rar labs, there is no update as of yet

You can edit the PKGBUILD file on the fly and install it with a one liner

wget -qO - | tar xz -C /tmp ; cd /tmp/rar* ; sed -i '/rar_static/d' PKGBUILD ; makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD ; makepkg -s ; pacman -U rar-* ;cd $HOME;clear

Simple !!!
