[arch-dev-public] trouble building packages with .install files

I'm having trouble building certain packages with .install files, for
example aur/vim-youcompleteme-git. If I build it with
extra-x86_64-build, I just get:

==> ERROR: install file (vimdoc.install) does not exist.

I have the same issue on pkgbuild.com, for example the libreoffice
PKGBUILD. I'm not sure what's causing this issue, but barthalion can
also reproduce the problem. It seems startdir_host is empty.

─marlowe:pts/1 /var/lib/archbuild/extra-x86_64/barthalion 
└─% ls -lh startdir
total 12K
-rw------- 1 nobody root 902 Jul  1 11:53 PKGBUILD
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root   root  28 Jul  1 11:53 YouCompleteMe -> /startdir_host/YouCompleteMe
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root   root  29 Jul  1 11:53 vimdoc.install -> /startdir_host/vimdoc.install
┌─marlowe:pts/1 /var/lib/archbuild/extra-x86_64/barthalion 
└─% ls -lh startdir_host
