I was unable to use imgcat with both xterm, tilda and gnome-terminal
emulators. I'm pretty sure that is doesn't work with any GNU/Linux
Such software, which only scope is to be used from a Mac only software
shouldn't have a place in the AUR, which is specific to the Arch Linux
Samba, ntfs-3g, hfstools and similar softwares are to be used from any
GNU/Linux to achieve a goal which is directly related to the Arch Linux.
IMHO imgcat doesn't fall in this category.
