Oh, I totally missed that we are already patching the Makefile as it explicitly asks for the docbook2x variant and those always were named differently on Arch. And indeed, the docbook2man from docbook-utils does not work.

Fixed in the new version. I also bumped the package version to the newest from Debian, although I think there are no actual code changes.

No, docbook2man from docbook-utils is different than package from docbook2x, you need to rename binary name that the build process wants https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-community/commit/c4165e3b95d08e6c29a545499e745d33fbdaed97#diff-3e341d2d9c67be01819b25b25d5e53ea3cdf3a38d28846cda85a195eb9b7203a

Oh, right. I need to update the build dependencies as docbook2man is now provided by docbook-utils.

For now you can workaround the issue by installing that package manually:

pacman -S --asdeps docbook-utils

Build fails

docbook2man ent.1.xml
make: docbook2man: No such file or directory
make: *** [Makefile:37: ent.1] Error 127

Updated PKGBUILD; added palmaway's manpage. I have no interest in maintaining this package, so I'm disowning it.

Please add the manpage to the package:

Updated build() function:

build() {
mkdir $startdir/src
unzip -d $startdir/src random.zip
cd $startdir/src
make
mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/usr/bin
install -m 755 ent $startdir/pkg/usr/bin
}

Added x86_64 to $arch (worked fine, indeed).

Works fine on x86_64. Please add to arch array.
