When your Arch Linux AUR package manager yaourt gives this error: "package-query: error while loading shared libraries: libalpm.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". Or just rebuild package-query manually and everything should be fine again. There is no real need to prune yaourt. You can find all the AUR helpers from Arch Linux AUR helpers wiki page.
