Yeah, thanks, this actually came to me while I was having breakfast
today (I wrote the original message right before I went to bed), so my
mistake. I forgot to check the list from pacman log after I upgraded

It seems perl-term-readline is my own fault too, I probably installed
it from source using the old PKGBUILD (and only modifying the version).
But I did find perl-parse-recdescent-1.95.1-1.pkg.tar.gz
in /var/cache/pacman/pkg and this package installs things into the old
directories. There's a new version of this package on FTP now (which
installs into correct directories) but the filename is still the same.
So maybe firmicus (who built the new version) forgot to increment
$pkgrel when he was updating the PKGBUILD?
