[arch-general] suggestions for astrolog package on aur

For ecraven specifically, the astrolog package needs its astrolog.dat file 
packaged with it since the astrolog.dat file controls the operation of 
astrolog itself.  I was able to fix that deficit after having downloaded 
and installed the aur package as a result of prior use of the software. 
That file belongs in /usr/share/astrolog and the DEFAULT path in 
astrolog.h needs to point to /usr/share/astrolog as well before 
compilation.  The file ephemall.zip also ought to be extracted into 
/usr/share/astrolog because that file on the same site as the astrolog 
software is the ephemeris files for astrolog.  The accuracy of 
calculations improve with use of ephemeris files and Lilith can then also 
be calculated.  Other than that, this is a good package and builds well.
