[aur-general] PKGBUILD Critique

When you do grep like that, you should use two [[, to make sure that it
doesn't care about spaces.


and in this case, you don't need them at all

	if grep -qi 'utf-*8' /etc/locale.conf; then

The above will fail and not execute the 'then' portion of the if statement
if the grep fails, the -q also prevents it from out putting anything, and
it will return an exit status of not one.

Even with that, the current PKGBUILD looks fine... just wanted to point it
