I couldn't figure this out until I took a look at the PKGBUILD, it uses sed to modify some of the paths hardcoded in "./i8kmon"

- in "./i8kmon" line 28
sysconfig /etc/i8kmon.conf
- becomes
sysconfig /etc/i8kutils/i8kmon.conf.conf
- after applying
sed -i 's|/etc/i8kmon|/etc/i8kutils/i8kmon.conf|g'

Since as far as I can tell there is only one occurance of "/etc/i8kmon" in "./i8kmon" the PKGBUILD should modify the sed line to:
sed -i 's|/etc/i8kmon|/etc/i8kutils/i8kmon|g' i8kmon || return 1

As far as I can tell "./i8kmon.1" - referred in the previous sed line of the PKGBUILD - is fine since it is already missing the ".conf" suffixes.

So, now can someone please fix this before my laptop/space-heater burns up :)
