When starting xboard with a UCI connection as described in the manual page, an error popup will show up complaining about polyglot not being available.

It might be a problem, because it seems, polyglot is not available on both the official repos and AUR.

Additional info:
* Latest version
* No config and no output comes out on stdout

Steps to reproduce (assuming stockfish is available):

$ xboard -fcp /usr/bin/stockfish -fUCI
This task depends upon

Actually it's available on, but it fails on build. I got it fixed, locally. I've posted a comment about it in the AUR page.
