Sorry, Dan.
I didn't test it since my departure and wasn't able to get back to
Arch things yet. :-(
I can only say I haven't seen significant issues with the latest build
I used, and all of them are fixed now (according to CVS).

Hope to see Pacman 3.0 final on Voodoo 0.8 final! ;-)

P.S.: What about that dependency bug in makepkg reported by Travis?
