nimbase.h is currently installed to /usr/lib/nim/nimbase.h

This causes running any nim generated compile scripts to fail with an error something like this:

stdlib_system.c:6:21: fatal error: nimbase.h: No such file or directory

The quick workaround is to run the compile script with an environment variable, like so.

C_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/lib sh

If you either installed nimbase.h to /usr/include/nimbase.h or created a symlink from /usr/include/nimbase.h -> /usr/lib/nim/nimbase.h this workaround won't be required, and I believe it falls inline with standard packaging practices in arch.

Additional info:
Name : nim
Version : 0.14.2-1

Steps to reproduce:
generate a build script for any nim software and try to run it.

nim c --genscript --compileonly somefile.nim

mv nimcache
cd nimcache
