arch package target
Arch Linux provides a mixed-mode package system. While ABS/
makepkg allows ports-style package building from source, the pacman installer works with binary packages.
-t arch target crafts such .pkg.txz archives, and embeds:
.PKGINFOa meta description ini file
.MTREEa bsdtar mode/type/gid/uid/checksum file
Generated tarballs don't carry a leading
./ for contained files. Otherwise this is a fairly standard target.
- Dependencies are listed (take note that Arch pkgnames may differ).
- License is just always listed as
'custom', no mapping yet defined.
- Build dependencies aren't mirrored (no idea what those are, and fpm doesn't have any).
- Owner/group ids are always set to root in the tarball.
