this package compile fine on aarch64, can you add it in the arch section of the PKGBUILD?

NOTE: This package now tracks the dev branch of upstream by default, instead of master. Upstream only uses master for full releases, so tracking dev makes this package more interesting.

Thanks for the heads-up, I updated the main package `zstd` but forgot about `zstd-git`. It should be working now.

Repository is moved to
Additionally, I can't build it with the current PKGBUILD:

install: cannot stat 'lib/LICENSE': No such file or directory

LICENSE is in the main directory now.

This package apparently includes files in `/usr/local/share/man`.

`/usr/local/share/man` is a symlink (belonging the the package `filesystem`) to `/usr/local/man`. Apparently pacman does not like this, and refuses to install the file (and therefore the package).

I guess this package does not use PREFIX=/usr to not conflict with the other `zstd` package, so... what should be done here?
EDIT: scratch that, it does conflict with zstd, so it really should use PREFIX=/usr.
EDIT2: Now fixed. Thanks!
