Hi there folks,

I took over recently on a package called sabnzbd, specifically:


While trying to update the PKGBUILD, I notice that it doesn't install
the depndencies. Is this the expected behaviour or am I not using the
right parameters, i.e. makepkg -s --asroot.

[root at myhost sabnzbd]# makepkg -s --asroot
==> Making package: sabnzbd 0.4.12-1 i686 (Sun Dec 13 23:21:24 EST 2009)
==> Checking Runtime Dependencies...
==> Installing missing dependencies...
par2cmdline package not found, searching for group...
error: 'par2cmdline': not found in sync db
==> ERROR: Pacman failed to install missing dependencies.

Please advise,
