Running makepasswd I get:

After preparing the two missing packages (perl-bytes-random-secure and perl-crypt-random-seed), I re-evaluated the interest of keeping makepasswd inside our repo. pwgen do the same job and faster.

Sp, Christian, are you interested by taking maintainership of makepasswd? In that case I fix the bug and I let you take over.
Otherwise, I drop makepasswd.

makepasswd always was the first to match my command completion. But I am fine with dropping it.

Did not know about pwgen, that one is really nice! Another alternative is mkpasswd from expect.

package moved to aur4, feel free to adopt it and fix it.
