Remember that this will fail to find real duplicates if you're using testing
and community-testing. What I did was make a new config with all custom
servers, testing, and community-testing commented out and just supplied the
pacman command in the given syntax (`pacman -Slq | cat - aurpkglist.txt |
cut -d' ' -f1 | sort | uniq -d`) with the new configuration file via
--config, resulting in a new syntax:

`pacman -Slq --config /path/to/commented/config | cat - aurpkglist.txt | cut
-d' ' -f1 | sort | uniq -d`

This gave me more reliable results.
