Version 3.0.3-5 of the vsftpd package added a PAM configuration file at /etc/pam.d/vsftpd which is not listed in the backup array in the PKGBUILD. Upgrading the package from earlier versions results in the following error message if one already had a PAM config there:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
vsftpd: /etc/pam.d/vsftpd exists in filesystem

Also, my custom config would now be overwritten by package upgrades.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 3.0.3-5 and later

Steps to reproduce:
* Create a custom PAM config for vsftpd at /etc/pam.d/vsftpd
* Upgrade from a earlier version to 3.0.3-5 or later (this will break)
* Reinstall the package (this will delete the custom config)
This task depends upon
