PKGBUILD is not out of date. Arch is using the unstable version of libtorrent.

The libtorrent version introduced into the repos is the unstable version. Look here:

You use this PKGBUILD until the stable version is released.

sorry, accidently marked wrong package

Seems to be looking for `du` in the wrong place while creating the package. Adding the symlink works: `ln -sf /bin/du /usr/bin/du`

@x33a: I don't use torrent very often right now (switched to usenet - sabnzbd), but i will be come back with a new rtorrent-extended package | for now i would use rtorrent-vi-color, because its the same like rtorrent-color but i like vi keybindings.
