The manpage is currently installed with an incorrect name. The installation line should be "install -D -m 644 man/start-stop-daemon.8 "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man8/start-stop-daemon.8""

The packaging author, Denis, kindly helped me to resolve this issue. I did not have pod2man. By installing the pod2man package from AUR ( first, the start-stop-daemon installed fine.

Hi, failed to install 1.20.5. Was using 'yay -Syu --devel'.
At the end of the output:

make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/avangel/.cache/yay/start-stop-daemon/src/dpkg-1.20.5/lib'
make: Nothing to be done for 'all'.

Here is a working PKGBUILD:

pkgdesc='Start and stop system daemon programs'
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

build() { cd dpkg-$pkgver ./configure --disable-dselect --disable-update-alternatives (cd lib && make) cd utils && make }

package() { cd dpkg-$pkgver install -D -m 755 utils/start-stop-daemon "$pkgdir/usr/bin/start-stop-daemon" install -D -m 644 man/ "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man8/start-stop-daemon.8" }

10 hours is enough to mark package orphan? Nice.
