Right, I should have checked that, my bad. Yes, it builds fine. I looked at the official downloads page and it says libftdi is optional dependency. No idea why people created not one but two duplicates just to include libftdi as a dep.
You see, I don't use flashrom myself. It's just some day I've discovered 3 packages at AUR that build the same software from the same repo just a bit different, have just a bit different names and have just a bit different dependencies. Honestly, I don't think this is right, but I really don't mind leaving them be.
