Thanks for providing this package! Would you be willing to also package burp-ui? Although only at version 0.6 many features are fully usable. Together it appears they will make an efficient couple.
After having gotten to know burp I really am not sure where all the other votes are.

@sja1440

thanks - package upgraded, and in near future I'll change version to 1.4.x - whenever it will be consider stable.

Whilst waiting for an official update I succeeded in installing burp-backup by the following changes PKGBUILD:

replace:

build() {
cd $srcdir/$_pkgname
./configure || return 1
}

with

prepare() {
cd $_pkgname
sed -i 's/\/var\/run/\/run/' Makefile.in
}

build() {
cd $srcdir/$_pkgname
./configure --sbindir=/usr/bin || return 1
}

This enabled installation but I did receive the following warning which probably needs to be followed up:
warning: directory permissions differ on /var/spool/

I am told that the PKGBUILD needs to be updated to follow the Directory Symlink Handling introduced by pacman 4.2.
