whoa, sysbench has made some major progress! thanks @graysky for doing 95% of my job for me. :p updated PKGBUILD directly from the linked gist.

This should not be an 'any' package since the make is arch specific.

unfortunately, it appears that sysbench is no longer hosted in any way on sourceforge. as a result, there is no longer a place from which a tarball of the source code may be downloaded, and the only option to acquire it is to check out from the launchpad bzr. i suppose i'll create a new vcs package and keep this one flagged out of date. if anyone becomes aware of a tarball available from launchpad or elsewhere, please link to it and i'll update this package.

$startdir is deprecated (

PKGBUILD's without package() functions are also deprecated.

Please update. I will adopt if you no longer wish to maintain.
