Is it possible to install a package with pacman and give some extra commands to pacman for install?
I would like to install it with mysql support to manage users for me..
Isnt there anyone that knows something about this?
what you'll want to do is run abs (as root) to download all the PKGBUILD files from the repos.
then you will want to find the PKGBUILD file for the package in question (start looking in /var/abs)
then copy the files you find for that package somewhere else (usually /var/abs/local/packagename), edit the PKGBUILD to add options to the ./configure line, and run makepkg to compile, then "pacman -A packagename-1.0-1.pkg.tar.gz" to install it.
that's just the quick and dirty explanation. read up about abs and makepkg to learn more.
"You will want to" is very, very convincing
