I tried to install "awesome" window manager, Im quite interested in it, and it's dependency is cairo-xcb.
I downloaded cairo-xcb from AUR but I cant install due to some error:
[broi@broi-Archlinux cairo-xcb]$ makepkg -csi ==> Making package: cairo-xcb 1.10.2-2 (Fri Mar 9 10:45:24 CET 2012) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> Retrieving Sources... -> Found cairo-1.10.2.tar.gz -> Found cairo-1.10.0-buggy_gradients.patch ==> Validating source files with md5sums... cairo-1.10.2.tar.gz ...

Better - base-devel group.
Arch Linux - rolling release distro, which users want to downgrade to the previous version
Install the whole base and base-devel groups (if you don't have them installed already).
If you do have 'patch' installed, it may mean you have some problem with $PATH.
Thanks y'all !
I installed base and base-devel, now it's all right ^^
