For now, pstoedit is not build against libemf (package available on aur).
Doing so would enable it to convert to emf file format.

Adding libemf as a dependance should be enough to make the configure script auto-discover the libemf.
This task depends upon

I had to google for that one. EMF appears to be a windows file format which is not supported by too many linux applications. At the moment I see no need to add support for it in the official repos, ABS/AUR should be fine here.

I say you uploaded libemf earlier today to AUR. Maybe when it appears to be a very popular package and more people like to see support for it, we can add it at a later stadium.
