Made some changes:
- cloning only master branch now, since cloning whole repository (> 1GB) is slow and not needed for build;
- updated dependencies (bash, openssl and zlib are added)
- some hardening added to the systemd units

Error is caused by using the SSLv3 by client in SoftEtherVPN (see i.e. ArchLinux now builds openssl with SSLv3_method disabled, so SoftEtherVPN can't be build anymore. I added small patch to disable the SSLv3, so now TLSv1 is forced for client.

When trying to build this I get the following error: on an x64 system

makedepends added

Can this package please get a makedepends=('git') so that it can be cleanly built in a chroot, using for example clean-chroot-manager. Thanks!

Note: I changed the package file structure, so please be sure to migrate vpn_server.config after upgrade.

Adopted and updated. Mentioned issues partially addressed. Also I changed the versioning scheme. Please try and report any issues.

I'm not using this package anymore, so I disown it.

1) it downloads 468MB!!!

with this hack it went down to 100MB only:

2) hamcore.se2 is the same so why not to create a symlink/hardlink to a single one:

# find /usr/vpn{b,c,s}* -name hamcore.se2 -exec ls -hil {} \;

3332484 -rw------- 1 root root 1.3M May 11 20:59 /usr/vpnbridge/hamcore.se2
3254125 -rw------- 1 root root 1.3M May 11 20:59 /usr/vpnclient/hamcore.se2
3254127 -rw------- 1 root root 1.3M May 11 20:59 /usr/vpncmd/hamcore.se2
3332463 -rw------- 1 root root 1.3M May 11 20:59 /usr/vpnserver/hamcore.se2

# find /usr/vpn{b,c,s}* -name hamcore.se2 -exec md5sum {} \;

70ceee6e59ce532bb4fdd328dcc78a1b /usr/vpnbridge/hamcore.se2
70ceee6e59ce532bb4fdd328dcc78a1b /usr/vpnclient/hamcore.se2
70ceee6e59ce532bb4fdd328dcc78a1b /usr/vpncmd/hamcore.se2
70ceee6e59ce532bb4fdd328dcc78a1b /usr/vpnserver/hamcore.se2

3) hamcore.se2 should be 644'd to get rid of the access issue:

$ vpncmd

-- Alert: SoftEther VPN Kernel --
Fatal Error: The file "hamcore.se2" is missing or broken.
Please check hamcore.se2.

(First, reboot the computer. If this problem occurs again, please reinstall VPN software files.)

# find /usr/vpn{b,c,s}* -name hamcore.se2 -exec chmod 644 {} \;

$ vpncmd

Select 1, 2 or 3:

aur helpers don't seem to keep files other than sources, so this means a new download every time this package is built, so it doesn't seem worthy, I think it should stay the same.
