Package is not broken. You can't build this with yaourt or pamac. It must be built with makepkg after obtaining the fonts manually.

@spirtbrat I decided to make split PKGBUILD at first, to reduce maintaining efforts and code duplication. But AUR doesn't support split PKGBUILDs yet, people start complaining, code complexity increased, so I decided to return classic PKGBUILDs. I'll upload Arabic, Hebrew, Chinese etc. packages soon.

Hello reflexing,

I really appreciate your efforts with the package. Can you tell us what
is happening now. The latest version contains 3 times less fonts
(253 -> 89). It seems that the package has everything I actually use,
so I'm not troubled in any way, but still, I'm curious.

@palmaway I did some searching and I think the newer files might be from one of the January updates. The files listed in this update have a newer date:

Splited package aren't officially supported by the AUR yet, but this might come with pacman/makepkg 4.2 (the above package use a very hackish version of split package, but not the .SRCINFO/.AURINFO that is intended - see
