[aur-general] Problem with my PKGBUILD or yaourt?

Hi all,

I've been maintaining sidplay-residfp and sidplay-residfp-libs for a
little while now, and have hit this on a couple of versions of my

I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong with my depends variable, or
if I'm hitting a bug in the yaourt AUR helper. As you can see in the
output below:

- Both packages are detected as upgrades (1.0.0 is installed)
- It tries sidplay-residfp first
- Detects that it needs the libs package, version 1.0.1
- Says it's gonna build from the AUR
- Then tries to use pacman to install an AUR package

Is it me, or is it yaourt?

I've seen yaourt work with lots of other packages and correctly go
through multiple levels of AUR deps to get something installed.

Links to my PKGBUILDs:


Any advice appreciated.
