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

Thanks, it works now. Is it ok that cambria.ttc is installed with the main package?

Fixed. Please test and report issues.

I deleted the comments that linked to the files on file sharing sites.

I deleted comments that linked to file sharing websites or encouraged piracy, but the legality of providing a script to help people break the TOU isn't clear.

Please don't post links to pre-built packages here, this package is already borderline but redistributing the fonts is definitely not okay.

Hmm… Is it really necessary to have the conflicts=() and especially provides=() parts?

One more remark… the ttf-ms-win8-vista package isn't being generated.

@andreyv, @spirtbrat WOW so many responses for package with only 20 votes :) I knew I would get something like this :( It's PADDY's today, anyway :) I will drunk-engineer it and fix package ASAP. Thanks for using Arch Linux.

Nice work with the update. Everything extracts, checks and builds
without problems. However, splitting the fonts into different packages,
which is a good idea IMHO, introduces a tricky problem. Now you have
multiple packages, each of them providing stuff and in the same time
conflicting with them. This way you can install only one of the 11
generated packages, because they all conflict with each other.

Thank you for your work. The font checksums all match now. When installing the new package, first I get a warning:

./PKGBUILD: line 345: warning: here-document at line 329 delimited by end-of-file (wanted `SETVAR')

Then installation fails because of a conflict between "ttf-ms-win8" и "ttf-ms-win8-arabic". Which packages of all that are generated should we install?

I put sources to GitHub for convenience:
