Note on gzip/gzip-zutils conflict. Technically zutils conflicts with gzip, however because gzip-zutils provides gzip, pacman sees gzip-zutils package as a conflict as well. Because gzip-zutils is a dependency, it lists the conflict with gzip to avoid an impossible solution/conflict loop. It's not pretty but it works, because, as far as I know, pacman doesn't have a feature like dpkg-divert. If anyone knows how to clean this up, please comment on this package or send me an email.
