The error is as it says: according to febootstrap, two packages (glibc
and ntfs-3g) both list /lib, but list it as a directory and a regular
file.  This is an irreconcilable problem as far as febootstrap is
concerned.

There are several possibilities:

(a) It really is a packaging problem with ArchLinux, nothing to do
with febootstrap.

(b) febootstrap's pacman support is having some trouble reading the
packages, so it thinks /lib has different types, but really it
doesn't.

(c) Pacman normally resolves this in some way, and febootstrap should
do the same thing.

Running the febootstrap command with -v may help.
