Details

Description:
lolcat added[1] a dependency on the manpages gem which seems more appropriate for local package installations where manpages would not be installed in standard manpage search paths. It is not a runtime dependency, so at minimum 'ruby-manpages' should be changed from 'depends' to 'makedepends'.

Taking it a step further, the dependency could be removed as you could manually install the package from the source dir:
- install -Dm 644 "${pkgdir}/${_gemdir}/gems/lolcat-${pkgver}/man/lolcat.6" -t "${pkgdir}/usr/share/man/man6"
+ install -Dm 644 man/lolcat.6 -t "${pkgdir}/usr/share/man/man6"
