Does anyone have suggestions about how to install pandoc on Arch? I am trying to install pandoc-static from here: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pandoc-static/, although it appears to be conflicting with my xmonad installation (I use xmonad as a TWM):
[grease-lightning]/home/.../builds/pandoc-static$ makepkg -s ==> Making package: pandoc-static 220.127.116.11-1 (Sun Aug 16 23:18:48 PDT 2015) ==> Checking runtime dependencies... ==> Checking buildtime dependencies... ==> Retrieving sources... -> Found pandoc-static-18.104.22.168-1.tar.xz -> Found pandoc-static-22.214.171.124-1.tar.xz.sig ==> Validating source files with sha512sums... pandoc-static-126.96.36.199-1.tar.xz ...

I am afraid of breaking my xmonad TWM if I force the reinstall. What should I do?
Perhaps I should install Pandoc via
sudo cabal install --global pandoc? If so, how should I install
cabal? I was thinking that I should download it from here: https://www.haskell.org/cabal/download.html
Any suggestions or recommendations are appreciated. I am also happy to clarify anything.
