The dspam PKGBUILD creates /var/log/dspam with permisions 0750 and owner:group root:root. However, dspam is run as user dspam by dspam.service. This causes dspam to be unable to open its log files. The PKGBUILD should do

chown dspam:dspam $pkgdir/var/log/dspam

Steps to reproduce:
systemctl start dspam
journalctl -flu dspam
