Ignoring that Antergoes isn't supported by this mailing list, AUR
helpers aren't supported by Arch Linux.

"Warning: AUR helpers are not supported by Arch Linux. You should
become familiar with the manual build process in order to be prepared
to troubleshoot problems." -

To keep it short,

$ pacman -Q yaourt 
yaourt 1.9-1

does work. A yaourt feature doesn't work properly, there's an issue
with showing AUR comments, but that has got no impact on the build
process. Yaourt does a good job, it suffers from minor pitfalls. By
default it builds in /tmp, which usually is a tmpfs, so it could be too
small to build some software. If you build manually in a too small
tmpfs, it's the same issue ;).

If a command isn't found, it's usually an issue that isn't related to
discontinued or problematic software. It's an issue on it's own.

$ hahaha -S espeak-ng-git
bash: hahaha: command not found
$ which yaourt 
$ which hahaha
which: no hahaha in
