Switched libtorrent-rasterbar dependency back to system version, which is now at 1.1.3 and works fairly well. The package no longer builds when using "libtorrent-rasterbar-1_0-git".

Note about package version: because this is a git package, even if the package version appears out of date in the AUR PKGBUILD, the most recent version will still be installed, and if you run yaourt with the "--devel" flag, it will "automagically" update all your AUR git packages to the most recent versions. With git-based PKGBUILDs there is a line (or lines) in the PKGBUILD which checks the git repo for the most recent version, regardless of the version listed in the PKGBUILD. in this case that line is:
git describe --long --tags | sed 's/^release-//;s/-/.r/;s/-/./'

That being said, I have gone ahead and updated the package version in the PKGBUILD to the most recent one, since I am already here :-) thank you for using my package, and happy torrenting!

Patch has been removed, as it has been merged into the source repo. libtorrent dependency has been changed to the AUR package "libtorrent-rasterbar-1_0-git", as the version in official repos is 1.1, which qbittorrent is currently having problems with. The "libtorrent-rasterbar-1_0-git" package provides the most recent version of libtorrent-rasterbar 1.0.X which will work properly with qbittorrent.

I have, for now, added a patch which provides a workaround for the log flood bug, so that this package may now be built with Qt5 and not suffer log flood problems.

If your log is flooded with "Network configuration has changed" messages, this is a known bug in qBittorrent:
... caused by a bug in Qt5:
This problem can be remedied by building with Qt4. First make sure you have Qt4 installed ;-) then edit the PKGBUILD before building, and change line 32 (omitting quotation marks) from:
"./configure --prefix=/usr"
"./configure --prefix=/usr --with-qt4"
