"file": exists in filesystem

I made one new package from source with makepkg. Compiling went through. When running "pacman --add" I get the following error:
/usr/lib/libpopt.a: exists in filesystem
/usr/lib/libpopt.so.0: exists in filesystem
/usr/lib/libpopt.so.0.0.0: exists in filesystem
/usr/lib/libpopt.la: exists in filesystem
/usr/lib/libpopt.so: exists in filesystem
How to compile the package to not include these files or when installing the package?

Re: "file": exists in filesystem

you could force the install with, i believe, --nodeps is the flag. man pacman should tell you more

I got the point seeing Arielext's avatar  smile

What about when removing the package? Will the forced file(s) also be removed causing problem to the package using the file(s) at the first place?

Re: "file": exists in filesystem

yes, a forced package is treated the exact same way as a normal package, soc don't worry
