Arch install is rather primitive from the ISO. just a little less bad
then Gentoo.. I don't know the arch-install script.

Once I have a working VM with Arch, I make a snapshot without any extra
Get the CinGG source, then start building it. ./configure will report 
multiple missing things, find out which packages they are in, install
those, see if they fix at least that problem, and record those as
needed. And so on until .configure goes OK and CinGG builds. 
Create a new entry for Arch/Manjaro/Endeavour in blds_prepare, add the
notted packages, save the file outside the Arch machine. 
Shutdown, restore the snapshot from before the package install, get the
CinGG source again, update bld_prepare.sh with the saves one, run it,
see if CinGG builds. 

What is the reason you are using Arch instead of Manjaro or Endeavour?
