The post_install() function in the install script for community/gtkwave contains a command _desktop not reconized by pacman. The following error occurs when installing gtkwave:

/tmp/alpm_r3h58L/.INSTALL: line 6: _desktop: command not found
error: command failed to execute correctly

Additionally, the package is out-of-date. 3.3.65 is out on 2014/12/26 according to ChangeLog in the source tree.

Additional info:
pacman 4.2.0-6
gtkwave 3.3.62-1

Steps to reproduce:
$ sudo pacman -R gtkwave
$ sudo pacman -S gtkwave
