Some will, many of those that don't will be fixable with a tweak of the 'arch=' line, and a few just won't work.  Nobody maintains a list of those that do work yet, but on inspecting the PKGBUILD if it just downloads a binary it probably will download the x64 version which won't work, but if on the other hand it calls some kind of make system then it will probably build fine.


Architecture: pentium4, Testing repos: Yes, Hardware: EeePC 901+2GB RAM+OS half on the SD card.

Just build it with arch=('i686'), if it works, provide some feedback to the maintainer of the AUR package, that
he/she should add i68 to the architecture. If not, try to fix it and provide feedback. If the package doesn't work on i686,
also provide feedback, so that others don't try to build it, when it's known not to work.

I'd expect 95% to build just fine (with the arch=... tweak, that is) and 4.9% to require minor modifications (replace "x86_64" by "x86" or something at some places - e.g. in the source url of some binary blob) the other per-mill will just not work as is or only with major involvement.
