The `arduino` package doesn't include the `libraries` directory which comes in the upstream tarball.

This directory is needed for many sketches to work, since it's Arduino's equivalent to `/usr/include/`.
This task depends upon

What exactly do you need? An empty folder? In which location?

Can you give me an exact example where this is a problem?

In the upstream Arduino package [1] there's a `libraries` directory with some libraries bundled by default like `Servo`, `Ethernet`, `Stepper`... and others. They are used when you do eg: `#include <Servo.h>` in your code, which works by default on other platforms (since the Servo library is bundled in the Arduino package) but doesn't work with Arch's package.
