And you should remove the versioned dependency in AUR. This can have
bad effects for the users if the system gets updated by pacman -Syu or
yaourt -Syua or the like.

Arch Linux is a rolling release distro which has only one version of a
package in the repos and you can assume that people keep their systems

I don't know if there's a reason for those versioned dependencies for
the devs and TUs in the binary repos but in AUR they are usually not
necessary and useful.

Glibc can also be removed from depends, because it's already in the
base group.
