A better solution is likely to package irrlicht straight from svn but I'm not sure I feel comfortable with that.
It would at least need to conflict.
This is what upstream of supertuxkart has written: "note that at this time SuperTuxKart uses irrlicht trunk, so you may need to build and install irrlicht from their SVN. We hope irrlicht 1.8 will be released soon and then distributions can start including it in their repositories"
And here is a thread in the forums of irrlicht upstream about that: http://irrlicht.sourceforge.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=37207&star...
To the question "When is 1.8 due to get out ?" someone replied among others: "You can get the SVN right now, conveniently through Irrlicht Nightly Builds."
So maybe you should indeed still hold off updating both. I mean supertuxkart 0.7 works and there are -svn packages in AUR if someone needs them. I just didn't know about the dependency issues.
