Tbh. I don't know for how long it has been flagged, but I assume it's
been a while because the last release was in 2009. However, I just now
see that it's a prerelease, dated 21/05/2009

Anyway, there are comments about problems with the PKGBUILD from 30 Mar
2010 and apparently no response at all. The PKGBUILD, from the looks of
it, hasn't been touched since 2008 and has a couple of apparent issues.

Thanks for CC'ing, I didn't suspect him being a TU.
