So it looks like the previous release of 0.3.14 had a bunch of files that weren't properly updated. For example, the ChangeLog had no mention of 0.3.14. The updated files were to correct this.

I really find the lack of care shown by upstream to be quite shocking, especially given that trousers is security-sensitive software. This is the second time they have retroactively updated their released source files. I hope that they will either be more careful going forward or that someone will write a new TCG software stack to take its place.

Found "95..." checksum'd tarball here: http://download.snake.de/dist/trousers-0.3.14.tar.gz

It does appear that the checksum has changed and I cannot find any explanation for this on the mailing lists. Given that the download is hosted on SourceForge, tinfoil investments might be in order. I'm hesitant to update the checksums without a more thorough investigation; unfortunately I don't have the original tarball in order to do a comparison.

trousers-0.3.14.tar.gz ... FAILED

I am seeing:
ce50713a261d14b735ec9ccd97609f0ad5ce69540af560e8c3ce9eb5f2d28f47 trousers-0.3.14.tar.gz

instead of:
95db55beb1556b12be9b4cf3123a3a59c7a70cc890d731fae93e6949305fb63b

Anyone else seeing that, or should I invest in tinfoil...

The default makepkg.conf file (linked below) removes libtool files from this package, preventing tpm-tools from building.
Can this option be overridden in a PKGBUILD?

I had to add -std=gnu89 to CFLAGS in order to build this.

Breaks with error: /tmp/yaourt-tmp-yuval/aur-trousers/src/trousers-0.3.13/missing: Unknown '--is-lightweight' option

Looks like they added bootstrap.sh to 0.3.11 and 0.3.13; I missed the post on trousers-users: http://sourceforge.net/p/trousers/mailman/message/32443407/

I've gone ahead and updated this now.

It looks like they uploaded a new tarball on June 10 for this release without any explanation, this seems a bit odd to me. I'm going to poke through the code and see if I can figure out what, if anything, changed. In the meantime, I've uploaded a copy of the old files here if you're suspicious of this like I am: https://mutantmonkey.in/files/trousers-0.3.13.tar.gz

Good work! But sha256sum for trouser-0.3.13.tar.gz is incorrect. The correct is bb908e4a3c88a17b247a4fc8e0fff3419d8a13170fe7bdfbe0e2c5c082a276d3.
Thanks! :)
