Description:
I'm getting the following errors for every package that doesn't contain any *.so* files, when running checkpkg:

bsdtar: *.so*: Not found in archive
bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
bsdtar: *.so*: Not found in archive
bsdtar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

checkpkg works fine regardless of the errors, though. When downgrading to previous version, the errors disappear.

Additional info:
* package version(s)

So this is coming from find-libprovides. Should that handle the case of a package with no libs, or should checkpkg simply suppress the error?

Probably just going to have to mask this in checkpkg. bsdtar doesn't consider it an error when your --include doesn't match anything in the archive =/
