Good work!

Sadly /me don't have experience with GNU build system.

Please add Ukrainian mirror too ;)

# Europe
# - Ukraine
Server= ftp://ftp.linux.kiev.ua/pub/Linux/ArchLinux/@REPO@/os/@CARCH@

Note that this might not work for non-Ukrainian users (due to traffic
cost separation it _could_ be disabled by ISP), I haven't checked
this. But it 100% works here.
