@mmd: Maybe that server rejects a specific user agent. Add '--user-agent "Mozilla/4.0"' to curl options in "/etc/makepkg.conf".

With wget everything works fine. Thanks!

I am sorry, I could not reproduce this error, everything works fine for me.

Given the HTTP error code returned (406 Not Acceptable: The requested resource is only capable of generating content not acceptable according to the Accept headers sent in the request.), I suppose curl sends an HTTP request that has too restrictive headers so the only suggestion I have for you is to try to change your download agent from curl to wget in your /etc/makepkg.conf.

I cant install this, because every time I just get the following error:
==> Retrieving Sources...
-> Downloading src610.tar.gz...
curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 406
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading src610.tar.gz
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build spin.
