Fair enough. Since its the preferred solution it could be considered as regular dependency though. I'll add it as optdep now and we'll maybe see later.

Because it falls back to using traceroute if scamper is not installed.

@zorun: why would it be an optdepends instead of a dependency? From the changelog it is not immediately clear…

Thanks for taking care of this package :)

I noticed that spoofer can now use scamper:

Can you add it to optdepends?

@zorun: thank you for your suggestions. the empty dir is still better tracked by pacman than just created by a daemon. this ensures removal at uninstall. other changes were implemented.

For some reason, all files except the compiled binaries were missing from the final package when I installed using yaourt.

Here is an improved PKGBUILD:

It uses --prefix to install things in /usr directly, fixes the location of the desktop file, and removes the empty /var/lib/spoofer/ dir (created automatically by the scheduler).
