I am not an Arch Linux user, so -- while I am very fond of the Arch
Linux documentation! -- I would prefer if Arch Linux users talked to
their packagers.

Gerd's build script is publicly available, of course: either from the
src.rpm under <https://www.kraxel.org/repos/jenkins/edk2/>, or directly
from git: <https://www.kraxel.org/cgit/jenkins/edk2/tree/edk2.git.spec>.

So... I cannot say if ArchLinux actually ships the split files, and just
the above example was incorrect, *or* if ArchLinux doesn't even ship the
split files.

In the ArchLinux wiki,


I saw pathnames like


hence I assumed that ArchLinux was shipping the split files (and that
the example near the top was incorrect). I may have been wrong -- I
don't use Arch and don't know what Arch package provides what files.
