That is why i was so surprised because at the first look there is no reason
why it stops for you and for me not. Me personally fells unwell if i have to
run makepkg under root acout but i can understand why you can live with your

Hmm, i don't know if i understand you in the right way but the solution from

I'm lazy so one extra line in makepkg is my favorite.-) If you want you can
