PKGBUILD should be edited as follows:

build() {
  cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
  ./configure --prefix=/usr --sbindir=/usr/bin --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --runstatedir=/var/run --localstatedir=/var

This way it looks for /etc/smcroute.conf instead of /usr/etc/smcroute.conf.

Moreover, on my raspberry pi, the provided systemd service does not start: it timeouts looking for a PID file which is never created. By default smcrouted creates PID files in /usr/var/run/ such file however is never created because /usr/var/run does not exist. The solution was to create such directory.

This currently looks for /usr/etc/smcroute.conf instead of /etc/smcroute.conf when starting the service. Probably a build configuration issue.

This package needs to be updated to 1.99.0 as well it needs a service file for systemd instead of an rc script.
