There seems to be an issue with the PKGBUILD that prevents the package from building/installing. Namely, this particular line:

 # Move the man directory to the correct location
 mv usr/man usr/share/man

I would always receive this message:

Install the project...

mv: cannot stat 'usr/man': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
Aborting...

Now even if the move command is changed to

 mv /usr/man /usr/share/man
and the man directory is manually created it would still fail with an error about not having permission (since Arch does not allow makepkg to be run with sudo).

Omitting the move command makes the package build and install just fine, it's just the manual that is missing now.
