Yes, that is true, it will output an error. I guess Arch Linux users are
skilled enough to go directly to AUR to check, is that what you mean? I
fear people will complain the package is not working, that's just it. When
makepkg outputs the error that the dependency can not be resolve, can I
output a message saying the should install it from AUR?
