A further note: in order for the grub build script 20_linux_tboot in /etc/grub.d/ to work you need to remove the grep check on line 127 for the entry in the kernel build config in /boot . Arch doesn't have those and the check fails because of that distro-blind if check. If you remove this and make the alteration from my previous comment, I believe the package does actually work.

chenxiaolong, delroth's problem is replicated on my machine. All of the sub-makefiles in this build are hard-coded to /usr/sbin, which doesn't exist in Arch (or rather exists only as a symlink).

I solved this by adding

mv "${pkgdir}/usr/sbin" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"

as the last line of the "build" stanza. This is not the prettiest solution, but it resolves the issue that delroth and I are experience. Please adopt it, or some better solution.

Fails install: tboot: /usr/sbin exists in filesystem

I just packaged this based on Fedora 16's tboot spec file. Feel free to take over the package if you know more about this package and how it works.
