There are some known bugs in vimpager with some shells (depending on which are installed). It might be nice to add "POSIX_SHELL=$(which bash)" to the make install step.

Be advised, I've had an issue that basically renders all vimpager scripts non-executable (the installation process mangles up shebangs somehow), here's the upstream report:
If you have a similar issue, you might want to add 'git checkout 2.06' to pkgver() in the PKGBUILD.

UPDATE: As per that Github issue, this patch (tested and applied) hardcodes /usr/bin/bash as the shebang interpreter
UPDATE: Nevermind, the current git master now fixes this problem (as it turns out, it was a problem with busybox).

I suggest this patch to the PKGBUILD because I get an error during packaging if the license dir does not exist and I think the license should be in a dir corresponding to the program name, not the package name.
