Improved a bit:
klibc upgrade requires user intervention
Due to a limitation in pacman's conflict checking and symbolic link
resolution, the upgrade to klibc-1.5.14-1 requires manual removal of a
symbolic link befole updating. Please run the command "rm
/usr/lib/klibc/include/asm" as root to remove the symbolic link that
will otherwise cause a few hundred false file conflicts.
