Thanks to the efforts of myself and tukozaki, I was able to re-upload the e4rat-lite-git package to the AUR. This one circumvents all the issues previously had with having to manually build the e4rat package. There are also no issues saving the log files, and the preload actually works. I get the feeling that my neglect to modify the original preload may have had an impact on this, but I digress.
The original post has been updated with the new commands and instructions.
