Missing dosbox-file-utils as makedep (otherwise fails with desktop-file-install not found)

The shortcut should have:

Exec=dosbox %f

@Vaporeon: That worked, thank you! Appreciate your work.

Just run makepkg again, vcs packages on the AUR always pull the latest source.

Can this package be updated to the latest SVN? Commit 4177 ( fixes a mouse locking problem that many people are getting with DosBox and 1.20.1+. Thanks!

Build fails due to recent upstream update.

==> ERROR: pkgver is not allowed to contain colons, forward slashes, hyphens or whitespace.
==> ERROR: pkgver() generated an invalid version: 0.74-2.4157

New version is called 0.74-2 upstream and it's unconforming to Arch's packaging rule.

In file included from sdlmain.cpp:57:
/usr/include/SDL/SDL_opengl.h:47:10: fatal error: GL/glu.h: No such file or directory

Missing dependency on glu?

Seems fine here.
