The package needs a bit of work to be run from desktop, and since this is a GUI app and it would violate my policy to log in to X as root (or even have a root login at all), some work needs to be done.

I've wrapped it in a shell script that runs it from pkexec and created a policykit file for it and it mostly works. It still complains about DBUS ...

Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon:
Using X11 for dbus-daemon autolaunch was disabled at compile time, set your DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS instead

I thought pkexec would have taken care of that with DISPLAY, but I can't spend more time on this right now.

The package depends on gksu, but doesn't actually seem to use it?

I can't launch this via the .desktop file, but only from the CLI using sudo.

Couldn't build it.
Sources depend on older type of autotools.

Somewhat updated PKGBUILD:

As FlorianD wrote. When installing with yaourt, the package didn't work at all, since yaourt removes the $pkgdir after building.

Please don't link to your $pkgdir, but rather the absolute path of the target binary i.e.
ln -fs $pkgdir/usr/... -> ln -fs /usr/...

Hello. To become compatible with the /usr/sbin removal, please add --sbindir=/usr/bin to the configure option.
