re: Why is base-devel needed? For compiling packages later?
 

The ''base-devel'' package group should also be installed if you plan on compiling software from the AUR or using ABS. So the package is not necessary at first, but quite probably later. But true, with an absolutely minimal installation it doesn't have to be there now...
Thanks for the tip, I adapted the article.
