passenger package doesn't build the Nginx helper agent. Since It is listed as optional deps for nginx package and nginx also builds the passenger module into its binary. Installing nginx and passenger and starting nginx on a rails project will give out an error
Unable to start the Phusion Passenger watchdog because it encountered the following error during startup: Unable to start the Phusion Passenger helper agent because its executable (/usr/lib/passenger/agents/nginx/PassengerHelperAgent) doesn't exist. This probably means that your Phusion Passenger installation is broken or incomplete. Please reinstall Phusion Passenger (-1: Unknown error)

in passenger PKGBUILD build()
rake nginx

Additional info:
packages: passenger 3.0.11-1, nginx 1.0.12-1
