Thanks jimmy00784 I confirm I have the error 403. I could fix with your file.

Please update the path of the source file as the existing one is giving 403 error. This may be possibly due to change on Gentoo's site.
I found the below to be working.

http://distfiles.gentoo.org/distfiles/miscsplashutils-0.1.8.tar.bz2

For the time being, this file can be manually downloaded and placed in the same folder as PKGBUILD.

@cyberpatrol That's unfortunate. It's thanks to able developers like you that Arch Linux is such a good distribution. There are arrogant people everywhere, please don't succomb to them.

Due to recent changes in Arch Linux for the worse, and the bad, ignorant and arrogant attitude of the Arch Linux devs, who aren't able to take criticism, who only want to hear their own opinion, I decided to not contribute to Arch Linux anymore. So I orphan this package.

Moved from /lib to /usr/lib.

@sirsteveh: Added your patch and informed upstream about it. Thanks. Unfortunately I currently can't find an appropriate fix for fbsplash.

@sirsteveh: I'll have a look at the patch later.

Please, stop flagging this package as out-of-date as long as there's no NEW upstream release!

Add this to the PKGBUILD just before `make`:

sed -i '26s,libz.a,libz.a $(LIBDIR)/libbz2.a,' fbtruetype/Makefile
