Hmm, this is strange: Now it's exactly the same build script on the same
machine as for the may iso :-/
I'm absolutely clueless what's wrong ... On the other hand, a segfault
would be a little harsh for a wrongly composed set of packages ... maybe
it's some conflict between the new kernel and the vm? :-/

Its similar to archlinuxarm: There is the original archlinux-keyring
package as well as a archlinux32-keyring (or archlinuxarm-keyring in the
case of archlinuxarm). In the end, it will be a pacman dependency (in
contrast to archlinuxarm!?), so nothing to bother about - but the
current isos still use the official pacman package, so it needs to be
installed explicitely.

This looks as I expect.
