Description: After upgrade to vimpager 1.4.8-1 vimpager stopped working with the error: "/usr/bin/vimpager: /bin/sh^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory."

Steps to reproduce: rum vimpager from the command prompt.

Converting the /usr/bin/vimpager file to unix line endings fixed the problem. (:set ff=unix in vim)
This task depends upon

APPARENTLY this has been fixed upstream.
A rebuild/install via ABS now yields a usable vimpager.
Tested above on x86_86 only

Just need to change from DOS to UNIX EOF characters.
