That's entirely bizarre, but I'm more concerned that somehow, this
jokester decided to add, for example, the ldconfig command to package().

Given makepkg will not ever allow you to run as root, it's difficult for
this to ever work out successfully... the PKGBUILD currently cannot and
will not ever successfully run.

Also seems like they've nuked the github repo and replaced it with
gitlab, but did not migrate issues. So much for your links in the
package comments.
