@catwell, I had the same problem.

I noticed that I did not want to rely on some "magic" stuff in my shell environment which Arch Linux "imposes" upon me unknowingly and had only my own clean bash profile and bashrc forced system-wide. So the magic which the perl installation does via /etc/profile.d/perlbin.sh did not apply to me.

So I had to manually add the path or manually source /etc/profile.d/perlbin.sh (refinind the helper function used there, too).

@catwell: As I understand, /usr/bin/*_perl/ should be in your path if you have the official Perl5 package installed (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Perl_Policy#Binaries_and_scripts and /etc/profile.d/perlbin.sh, which is owned by perl). Because perl is a makedepend, I think _not_ hardcoding the path is the right thing to do and is more compatible with crazy setups ppl might have.

In your case I don't know why /usr/bin/core_perl/ isn't in your PATH, but you could just edit the PKGBUILD, line 41, to invoke pod2man with an absolute path.

Does anyone else have the build fail because pod2man is not in $PATH? Hardcoding its path (/usr/bin/core_perl/pod2man) could probably fix.

Couldn't we make an optimization regarding speed? Adding the -O3 option to both, the library and the executable should speed up things (at least it's recommended according to the official zpaq readme file).

Thanks for the quick update, but you forgot to change the checksum though.
