Description: uses log function, but it is not linked with libm.
So, we can't use RATEEST as target in iptables.

Additional info:
* iptables 1.4.5 is buggy, iptables 1.4.4 is ok.
* Patched PKGBUILD attached.

Steps to reproduce:
sudo iptables -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j RATEEST --rateest-name eth0 --rateest-interval 250ms --rateest-ewma 0.5s
/usr/lib/iptables/ /usr/lib/iptables/ undefined symbol: log
iptables v1.4.5: unknown option `--rateest-name'
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.

   PKGBUILD (1.6 KiB)
This task depends upon

Maybe it's worth to add your configuration file for checking.
