https://bbs.archlinux.org – I also had this problem.  I put a line in the PKGBUILD right before the install line to 'sed' the /bin/install in the Makefile to /usr/bin/install and it worked perfectly.... package() { cd $srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver/ sed -i 's|/bin/install|/usr/bin/install|' Makefile make PREFIX-/usr sysconfdir=/etc localstatedir=/var DESTDIR=$pkgdir install } ...EDIT: fixed one typo - there may be others as the sed line was not copied from a working version of the PKGBUILD, but rater reconstructed from memory.EDIT AGAIN: I guess this is similar to Karol's point.  (HowTos)
