The build process has changed in this latest release, v2.8; namely Autotools is no longer used, so there is no <pre>./configure</pre> script to run and no aclocal folder to remove at the end of the <pre>package()</pre> function. We can resort to manually modifying the makefile to remove the local folder (as in change <pre>/usr/local</pre> paths to <pre>/usr</pre>):

prepare() {
cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
sed --in-place 's/usr\/local/usr/g' makefile

build() {
cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"

package() {
cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
make DESTDIR="$pkgdir/" install

I've also removed references to $srcdir as each PKGBUILD function begins with $srcdir as its working directory.

Looks like this has been updated to 2.6 so the download fails for 2.5

Voted, nice addition. No pkg 'sh' exists, and AUR assumes base stuff implicitly, so 'sh' can drop. While I'm not familiar with this utility, wouldn't 'extra/ddrescue' be a dependency, or at least an optdepends? Thanks.
