The binaries from the progsreiserfs package shouldnt be used for reiser filesystem maintainance.
The package is only useful due to the fact it provides libreiserfs which is used by testdisk in order to support reiser partitions.
Debian dropped the package completely years ago, while Gentoo decided to provide only the lib.
I suggest since Arch wants to keep supporting reiser partitions in testdisk to follow what Gentoo did.
This task depends upon
