I do like gconfpkg. It greatly simplifies creation of PKGBUILDs for
Gnome applications.
It is included in gconf package for 2 months already, so I think AUR
packages can start using it.
The good thing is that solution like gconfpkg doesn't require any
changes to Pacman.
The bad thing is that this solution can be used only for packages that
depend on a package which include such script.
