Arch version bump to replace non-working upstream source with working upstream source.

The link to the source file at "" is no longer available.

Arch version bump to remove unneeded rpmextract, remove unneeded return commands, and replace non-working upstream source with working source. The sgi-bitmap-fonts source rpm from SuSE contains the same sgi-fonts.tar file that my earlier PKGBUILDs downloaded from SGI. The SGI site is live but empty.

Why is this extracting the source a second time? makepkg already does it for you.

Thanks to Arch user tuxsavvy for posting about the error. I can reproduce it, but I don't know the cause. I posted on the Arch forums, but have had no response.
I am uploading Arch version 6 to work around the error by correcting the Makefile with two sed commands. The installation location remains the same as before.

In a nutshell $pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/misc does not exist however $pkgdir/fonts/X11/misc does exist and so the line was replaced which fixes the error with building.

Arch version bump to add x86_64 compatibility, thanks to Arch user JokerBoy.

Please add 'x86_64' to arch array.
