Oh, thanks for that hint. Fixed in arch head.

I do not use it myself, but adding a few scripts to the installation
does not break anything and it was found useful by an user.

Right, replacing the -I option with `xml2-config --cflags` works fine
and seems to be more portable. Fixed in arch head.

Right now only in arch head:
The three 25contrib* were split out of the 25contrib patch currently
in 7.4.6-2. The dbf2pg patches were added by me yesterday. I will
probably make a new upload soon, though.
Thanks for considering and have a nice day!
