The PKGBUILD and .install file still contain references to the user's
home directory (for the latter, it's only a harmless message in
post_install, but the information is wrong).

After taking a closer look at oh-my-zsh, I'm not sure if it's a good
candidate for a package. I find the manual installation instructions
at https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh#readme to be very
intuitive and easy to follow, and at the same time providing the user
with complete control over what's happening.

Maybe I'm looking at it the wrong way, but having a package which is a
snapshot of the Git repository isn't much better -- and is probably
worse -- than each user keeping a Git clone in their home directories.
