I try to install rar using yaourt, problem is I get +5k results and can't filter out the package containing rar. Neither
|grep helps nor
|head, the first hundreds of lines are lib'rar'ies.
What could I do to get around this?

You use an AUR helper that actually works and is not fundamentally insecure:
cower -s '^rar$' aur/rar 5.3.0-1 (668, 6.91) A command-line port of the rar compression utility
You can search by "Exact Name" on the AUR website: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?O=0&SeB=N&K=rar&outdated=&SB=n&SO=a&PP=50&do_Search=Go which brings you to https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rar/.
Take some words of the description from this link: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rar/
The description is :
A command-line port of the rar compression utility
for example use:
