I don't have any powers to post on arch-dev-public, so I'm writing here.

Since I upgraded to pacman 4.0 (and building tools related to pacman
4.0), some packages which have both an install file and a name like
something-git won't build.

For example, if I try to build vlc-git,
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=16084, I cannot get it build
until I comment install=() line :

[fred at fredo-arch vlc-git]$ makepkg
==> ERROR : install file (('vlc-git.install')) doesn't exist

But a little ls tells me :

[fred at fredo-arch vlc-git]$ ls
PKGBUILD vlc-git.install

Known bug ?

install file line in this package :


I can see the same for a package I try to maintain, kvm-git :

Any ideas ?
