[aur-general] epiar

The renowned shooter game 'epiar' actually has a new version with lower
version numbers. (current 0.4.1 is newer than 0.5)

The build system of the original source archive is partially broken.
However I managed to make up a environment that runs.

	1)	forgive the original build() function, use

		sh autogen.sh && ./configure --prefix=/usr && make || return 1
	2) because the Lua library comes with it doesn't honour DESTDIR, and
		the fact that we don't need it since already have one.

		comment out the entire "install:" block for Source/Lua/Makefile
	3) the original 'make install' is broken because it only installs the
		binary. actually the 'Resource' directory is also needed.

	4) make a wrapper script to run the game.
