Build fails. Changing README.txt to in PKGBUILD fixes the issue.

==> Starting package()... install: cannot stat 'README.txt': No such file or directory

still failing after the suggested change:

I tried to build this package and received:

efifile.c: In function ‘efi_extract’:
efifile.c:180:11: error: taking address of packed member of ‘struct <anonymous>’ may result in an unaligned pointer value [-Werror=address-of-packed-member]
  180 |   wname = info.file.FileName;
      |           ^~~~
cc1: all warnings being treated as errors
make: *** [Makefile:141: efifile.x86_64.s] Error 1

So I then edited the file src/wimboot/src/Makefile and changed:

CFLAGS += -Os -ffreestanding -Wall -W -Werror -nostdinc -I. -fshort-wchar


CFLAGS += -Os -ffreestanding -Wall -W -Wno-error -nostdinc -I. -fshort-wchar

And then built the package with:

makepkg -se

Or to also install it: (it installs to /usr/share/wimboot)

makepkg -sei

The -e parameter preserves the changes made to the source dir.
