Running quiz reports "sh: /bin/less: No such file or directory". less is in /usr/bin. Probably an upstream bug? Tried rebuilding from abs, same problem.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
less: 444-3
bsd-games: 2.17-11

* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
install less, install bsd-games, run "quiz"
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  The path of the pager was being overridden in config.params.
Upstream's default is /usr/bin/less.
Until fairly recently, Arch had less in /bin, and not /usr/bin.
Anyway, the fix was downright trivial!
Many thanks for your report.

The error is in quiz/pathnames.h, where _PATH_PAGER is defined to be "/bin/less". This should be fixed in the PKGBUILD.
