Tried to install xpdf, but failed as below. Looks that there is a reference to create a directory 'mkdir -p /home/lee...' without permission. Any suggestions please?
You are using Manjaro which is not supported by this mailing list.
With my version of Pacman v4.2.1 - libalpm v9.0.1, the pkgbuild fails with permission errors. Basically everything in build() needs moved to package().
That sounds awfully wrong, the PKGBUILD works and builds fine in a clean chroot for me.

This is not supported and not recommended.
So simply try this instead..
$ wget https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/snapshot/xpdf.tar.gz $ tar xvf xpdf.tar.gz && cd xpdf $ makepkg -si
Read the fine wiki, whiich has this information.
