There is no file called guestfsd in the repos. Whatever you have installed from elsewhere, it's your responsibility to rebuild it when needed.

Edit:OK, I may be wrong here, guestfsd may be inside an image in the package?

@anthraxx can we add a note to the yara PKGBUILD so that depending packages are rebuild on soname change? This seems to be a reoccuring issue.

First time I actually even hear about any relation of libguestfs to yara, I've not even been assigned in  FS#71327  to get notified about it.

Quite unfortunate its hidden away in ./usr/lib/guestfs/supermin.d/daemon.tar.gz there is no way to let sogrep detect it.
I'll add a comment to the PKGBUILD, please someone rebuild libguestfs.
