@catwell: As I understand, /usr/bin/*_perl/ should be in your path if you have the official Perl5 package installed (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Perl_Policy#Binaries_and_scripts and /etc/profile.d/perlbin.sh, which is owned by perl). Because perl is a makedepend, I think _not_ hardcoding the path is the right thing to do and is more compatible with crazy setups ppl might have.

In your case I don't know why /usr/bin/core_perl/ isn't in your PATH, but you could just edit the PKGBUILD, line 41, to invoke pod2man with an absolute path.

Does anyone else have the build fail because pod2man is not in $PATH? Hardcoding its path (/usr/bin/core_perl/pod2man) could probably fix.

Couldn't we make an optimization regarding speed? Adding the -O3 option to both, the library and the executable should speed up things (at least it's recommended according to the official zpaq readme file).

Thanks for the quick update, but you forgot to change the checksum though.
