It results that the package is named rxvt-unicode-X-9.07-1.tar.bz2 but 
in the end install binaries that are named urxvt:


and all of them were compiled on Jan 2010. The non unicode is even 
older, so probably everything is broken. I get also the "Bad address" or 
"unable to connect to the rxvt-unicode daemon: No such file or 
directory" errors.
