Patched so it doesn't depend on the docbook-xsl version anymore and also added 2 makedepends that are not pulled by dpkg.

Can not build, log here

Fixed. Thx for reporting. I (obviously) can't chrootbuild ATM. (no systemd system)

By the way, I personally only use this as dependency for python2-apt and that for bzr builddeb. No actual package management in arch with apt ;-)

FYI: This package is now in

It's not buildable unless you have installed dpkg first because dpkg-architecture is missing otherwise.

.configure output:
checking bzlib.h presence... yes
checking for bzlib.h... yes
checking debian architecture... ./configure: line 4652: dpkg-architecture: command not found
configure: error: failed: use --host= or output from dpkg-architecture

Why would "install -d" be better than "mkdir -p"? (I guess "makepkg -p" is a typo on your end)

I could use "install -D" at two places, but at the other places I want the last part to be a directory where I can drop my file in (which doesn't work if that directory isn't previously created).
I could actually use "cp" at most of the places, but with install a make sure that the mode really is correct.

it you are really going to do this... at least use install -D and -d instead of all those makepkg -p commands
