No, the PKGBUILD is poorly made. It's installing stuff in /usr/local which is protected by pacman as local dirs are for manually-installed files. It's not handled by the package manager.

For me it fails to install due to “conflicting files”, saying “wev-git: /usr/local/share/man exists in filesystem (owned by filesystem)”. I can’t see where the install target would offend that though. Is my installation being weird here?
