He probably used namcap: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Namcap

Meh, your changes didn't break anything, so I'll acquiesce to your request, however loquacious it came across ;-) In the future please be verbose about what commands were executed in order to get the reported errors for more rapid dispensation of said offense.

@coyote25, so... I'm not sure how you got those errors... care to elaborate how one goes about replicating this offensive spew?

In short, replace your build() with:

build() {
mkdir -p $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver
cabextract --lowercase $srcdir/PowerPointViewer.exe -d $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver
cabextract --lowercase $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/ppviewer.cab -d $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver
mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/TTF
install -m644 $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/*.{ttf,ttc} $pkgdir/usr/share/fonts/TTF
mv $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/eula $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/license.txt
mkdir -p $pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname
install -D -m644 $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/license.txt $pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname
}

Updated to the May 25, 2011 release. I'll try to keep up on this pkg, however, any problems, aside from the acquisition of the files will need to be resolved elsewhere, I do not have the energy nor the desire to track down bug fixes for Microsoft software, but I will attempt to keep the releases up to date. Sorry for the past 6 months.

It seems that package 'fontforge' is required

I was quite busy recently, I will devote some time to this PKGBUILD in the near future. I hope I can iron out some of the rendering issues. Thanks to everyone for the pointers.

Hi there is newer powerpointviewer 2010, the pkgbuild works almost unchanged.

(Yes, we can fix these with personal fonts.conf, but having these fixes included in this AUR package, bundled with the offending fonts is another thing (DRY))
