Hmm, I must have been mistaken. I read the diff from the commit list,
not the whole PKGBUILD. There was something with these two lines coming

mkdir -p usr/share/man/man{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8}
ln -s man3 $startdir/pkg/usr/share/man/man3x

I mistakenly read the ln -s operation on the second line to be a
symlink to /usr, where it's actually just a man3x symlink.

One thing wrong with this package though: you built it with a broken
makepkg, the manpage directories are all moved back to /usr/man :P

I can verify that this wasn't fixed on my update. My /etc/profile was
still my original one and I ended up extracting the etc/profile from the
filesystem package by hand.
