Please add the aarch64 architecture or change it to any. It builds quite nicely. Thank you for your support.

@Depau I followed your changes and they worked. I think you can even get rid of the DESTDIR variable and just use the PREFIX dir.

Side-note, it might be worth marking this as orphaned.

Hey, could you please fix the PREFIX issue?

Thank you.

No, the PKGBUILD is poorly made. It's installing stuff in /usr/local which is protected by pacman as local dirs are for manually-installed files. It's not handled by the package manager.

For me it fails to install due to “conflicting files”, saying “wev-git: /usr/local/share/man exists in filesystem (owned by filesystem)”. I can’t see where the install target would offend that though. Is my installation being weird here?
