[SOLVED] rxvt-unicode makepkg fails after switch to pkgctl

I just followed the instructions to switch to pkgctl, and I cloned the rxvt-unicode package as I want to rebuild it to enable background images.

But when I run makepkg, it fails with permission errors:

configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --enable-lastlog, --enable-utmp, --enable-wtmp
[...]
/usr/bin/tic -x ./etc/rxvt-unicode.terminfo || \
           /usr/bin/tic ./etc/rxvt-unicode.terminfo
"./etc/rxvt-unicode.terminfo", line 7, terminal 'rxvt-unicode': /usr/share/terminfo/r: permission denied
make[1]: *** [Makefile:103: install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory 'rxvt-unicode/src/rxvt-unicode-9.31/doc'
make: *** [Makefile:37: install] Error 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_rxvt-unicode().
    Aborting...

I tried compiling the same PKGBUILD on an Arch system that wasn't up to date and it worked.  The 'tic' binary on the machine that worked is from the ncurses 6.4-1 package, but on the broken machine it's using ncurses 6.4_20230520-1.

Is this a bug in ncurses, rxvt-unicode, or does makepkg now need to run as root?

Ah, thanks for that.  I'm surprised those posts and bug reports never showed up while I was searching for the error message.
