Attempting to install the `openzwave` package version 1.6-4 results in an error `cannot resolve "", a dependency of "openzwave"`.

Looking at the .PKGINFO in the zst I see `depend =`. Specifically from this version:

$ sha256sum openzwave-1.6-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
aac4769331f7d7f32fedef1af65ccdccd35f5bfe63c6ec3fa3e5c814f9d74aba openzwave-1.6-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

obtained from the `Download From Mirror` link on

Steps to reproduce:

[mjec@redacted ~]$ sudo pacman -Sy openzwave
