bsd-games includes /usr/bin/banner, which is a pretty primitive work-alike as the package in the AUR with the same name. they conflict.
banner should be removed from bsd-games, much the same way as fortune was. banner (in AUR), figlet and toilet do the job much better.

Additional info:
* package version(s)

As of 2.17-11, banner is gone.
Maybe someone should move the banner package from the AUR. It has plenty
of votes. I'm not too interested in maintaining it, though.

Thanks for your report.
