[SOLVED] virtualbox-modules: dkms: command not found

$ makepkg -s
==> Making package: virtualbox-modules 4.2.6-4 (Tue Jan 29 15:42:01 EET 2013)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...
==> Checking buildtime dependencies...
==> Retrieving Sources...

  -> Host modules
/home/yuri/builds/virtualbox-modules/PKGBUILD: line 26: dkms: command not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...
$ which dkms
which: no dkms in (~/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/vendor_perl:/usr/bin/core_perl)
$ su - -c 'which dkms'
/usr/sbin/dkms

Since makepkg uses fakeroot (and should never be run as root), ...

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR

What is the proper way to make it work? Thank you.

Post your PKGBUILD.
Try adding /usr/sbin to your $PATH.

It's not my PKGBUILD. It's PKGBUILD, downloaded by abs (community/virtualbox-modules):

Could it possibly be that this time makepkg must be run as root?

Re: [SOLVED] virtualbox-modules: dkms: command not found

It appears my PATH was broken.
