Definitely yes--I had never checked out this package before last night
so it was fresh.

What I don't understand is why the repos PKGBUILD was flagged as
conflicting, since it was identical to the PKGBUILD in trunk (prior to
my changes of course).

All I did was update the PKGBUILD in trunk, built the package, tested
it and then ran 'extrapkg'.  That's when it told me there was problem
with the repos/extra-i686 version of the PKGBUILD.
