Any ideas as what is causing my build to fail? I assume it's an issue with manpages I can't figure out exactly what package it is looking for that I don't have.

Looks like the section 8 manpage doesn't could just try touch manpages/forgetthis.8

Have you tried posting a comment on the AUR page? The maintainer is usually able to help with those sorts of things.

The thing that usually gets me into trouble is not having an updated system. You've -Syued today?
