Ah ha, then perhaps it needs updating :)

Ah, but now I see why it isn't updated:

     lhs2tex 1.14-1
     Preprocessor to generate LaTeX code from literate Haskell sources.

     unsupported :: devel
     Maintainer: partition

arch-haskell isn't the owner, so we can't fix it :(

Attached is a PKGBULD nonetheless.

Perhaps it is time to take this one over too.
