Can't wait for skype 4 package to make it in arch repository, here is how to get skype 4 on arch linux by using the .deb from skype website.
First of all, you need deb2targz which you can get from aur or with yaourt
yaourt -S deb2targz
Then you get skype for Debian 6.0 (32 or 64 bit depending if you run arch 64 or not). I'm running arch 64.
Finally you convert the .deb into .tar.gz
You move the .tar.gz you get into / and you extract the content
tar zxf skype-debian_184.108.40.206-1_amd64.tar.gz
You can now run skype 4, it works flawlessly on arch linux.
