"Why does this conflict with xscreensaver? In fact installing this breaks xscreensaver." You've answered your own question. That is practically the definition of conflicts.

Why does this conflict with xscreensaver? It does not install xscreensaver at all, in fact installing this breaks xscreensaver.

tikiking1, some etiquette suggestions. Please use a paste site and link to a revised pkgbuild instead of putting it in a comment. And when a package is out of date, merely flagging it all that is required.

I get: "==> ERROR: LICENSE was not found in the build directory and is not a URL. The build failed." when trying to build. (PS: Thanks for the package!)
