It may be kept in AUR. For example, some packages, such as vmd, ttf-win7-
fonts, require a preload of source files. In this case to install a package 
you need download tarball, download source files and build and install it 
using makepkg (not automatical tools like packer or yaourt).

Do you still want to remove this package?
