This is caused by a mkdir "../systemd" in the PKGBUILD when an earlier version was installed. mkdir -p?

@jgottula: Thanks, I've applied your fix from zfs-auto-snapshot-git (and added you as a co-maintainer for this package).

There's a pretty major bug involving this PKGBUILD and old-snapshot-deletion, wherein enabling the --fast option while using this package will very likely result in the wrong "old" snapshots being destroyed. See my comment from today on the AUR page for zfs-auto-snapshot-git for details (it's the exact same situation with that package).
