Just go ahead with the process described on 
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/DevelopmentTeam/Jhbuild. If the build process 
complains about missing libraries or such, install the equivalent with yaourt 
and try again.

I can confirm that sugar builds successfully on arch this way, but sugar 
emulator did not run because of some issue... hope you have more luck :-)
