Makepkg was fixed in 0.3.4, released on 2010-06-16. What packages
have been updated since then?


You mean 3.4.0?

Anyway, not all "return 1"s are bad as there are some special cases.
e.g. there is one in the binutils PKGBUILD in a helper function that
generates the source tarball.

Uhh... I see myself in you, somewhat. People that make graphs, and
estimation of everything...

In my last "work" I made a Monte Carlo simulation for estimating the
probabilities of the winner of soccer championship (BrasileirĂŁo 2010,
I'm Brazilian) (note: I hate soccer...). And worked! I get the first 3
places correct six rounds before the end (from a total of 38
rounds)...
