OK, I've checked this with Pacman 3 ( /usr/local/bin/pacman.static -Su ):
. . .
connect: Connection refused
[12:19:08] warning: cannot connect to archlinux.antesis.org
. . .
[12:23:45] warning: failed to retrieve some files from current

error: failed to commit transaction (unexpected error)

It seems that this bug is fixed in Pacman 3! :-)

BTW, make install complained about Hungarian man files:

 /bin/install -c -m 644 'pacman.8' '/usr/local/share/man/hu/man8/pacman.8'
/bin/install: cannot stat `pacman.8': No such file or directory
 /bin/install -c -m 644 'makepkg.8' '/usr/local/share/man/hu/man8/makepkg.8'
/bin/install: cannot stat `makepkg.8': No such file or directory
 /bin/install -c -m 644 'PKGBUILD.8' '/usr/local/share/man/hu/man8/PKGBUILD.8'
/bin/install: cannot stat `PKGBUILD.8': No such file or directory

Sorry, parts of messages are in Ukrainian because I use uk_UA.KOI8-U locale.
