pacman -Syu fails with this error:
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) nspr: /usr/share/aclocal/nspr.m4 exists in filesystem Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
I found this thread, which suggested resyncing mirrors, but that didn't help.

FYI: archlinux is widely known for our excellent wiki. Be sure to check there and search the forums before starting new threads. Many problems can be solved with a good search.
As a second FYI, I don't know if the use of the manjaro boards (linked in OP) was just a coincidence of what your previous search gave you or if you are using Manjaro. If it's the latter there are many differences between Manjaro and Archlinux. In this case they are similar enough to share a solution, but in other cases we would be unable to help you here. In short, if you are using Manjaro, be sure to ask on their forums if you have future problems.
I'm not using Manjaro; that just happened to be the only search result I found. I read the wiki constantly (I even have keywords set up in Chromium to search the wiki and the BBS), but in this instance, I was simply being too specific with my search. I've been using Arch for a year now, and this was the first time I've had to ask for help--call it a fluke.
Cool, flukes happen, and all of our google fu occasionally fails - so in that case that's exactly what these forums are for. Glad it worked out.
