I suspect its something broken with 'yaourt'. According to
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_helpers#Active yaourt has been
flagged as Discontinued or problematic.
Ignoring that Antergoes isn't supported by this mailing list, AUR
helpers aren't supported by Arch Linux.
"Warning: AUR helpers are not supported by Arch Linux. You should
become familiar with the manual build process in order to be prepared
to troubleshoot problems." -
To keep it short,
$ pacman -Q yaourt
does work. A yaourt feature doesn't work properly, there's an issue
with showing AUR comments, but that has got no impact on the build
process. Yaourt does a good job, it suffers from minor pitfalls. By
default it builds in /tmp, which usually is a tmpfs, so it could be too
small to build some software. If you build manually in a too small
tmpfs, it's the same issue ;).
If a command isn't found, it's usually an issue that isn't related to
discontinued or problematic software. It's an issue on it's own.
$ hahaha -S espeak-ng-git
