I was doing a regular system update and notice an error message.
Pacman doesn't fails the transaction and updates everything but the following message appears:
"error: command failed to execute correctly"

After this I tried to reinstal the package to check if the error still occured and yes it does.

Additional info:
* Attached pacman -v --debug -Syu autoconf-archive

Steps to reproduce:
* pacman -Syu autconf-archive and the error should show up.
