I has managed to compile version 3.1.2p1 which fixes the security
issue. In order to compile I had to clean up the PKGBUILD and removed
the patches from our release. 

I have tested the package and it works. But please test the new package
which is in [testing]. Maybe I have overseen some critical part of  the
patches and something doesn't work anymore. I will post a signoff mail
after I have build it for i686.
