In the latest version of usbutils (0.73-3) the update-usbids script doesn't work. It seems that the --datadir=/usr/share/hwdata is not set in that file. Instead we get /usr/share/usbutils:

[root@paradigm ~]# pacman -Q usbutils
usbutils 0.73-3
[root@paradigm ~]# update-usbids
/usr/share/usbutils/ No such file or directory
update-usbids: download failed
[root@paradigm ~]#

It can be trivially fixed with some sed magic, otherwise it'd be necessary to look in the Makefile and find out what happens. If nobody can do it, I will after I solve a problem on my machine.
This task depends upon
