Well, this is fixed, but not in the way it should be.  The actual
error is related to http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/3492 and is a
complicated fix.  For right now, I'm reporting an error due to:
a) the difficulty in fixing that *correctly*
b) the fact that it is an edge case, an operation typically done with -S

Here is my output (trimmed for email purposes):

$ sudo pacman3 -U ncmpc-svn-5200-2-i686.pkg.tar.gz
 ncmpc-svn           79.6K  112.7K/s 00:00:01 [###########] 100%
loading package data... done.
checking dependencies...
error: replacing packages with -A and -U is not supported yet
error: please remove 'ncmpc' first, using -Rd
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)

While it's not the best solution, it will work for the time being.
