Tavian, thanks for your suggestion. For trinity, the whole svn tree is already 
on my computer:


I have the PKGBUILDs each trinity module directory (eg. 
{tqtinterface,arts,kdelibs,etc...} )

So there is no 'svn checkout' performed from within the PKGBUILDs. For example, 
each directory is similar to the following:

20:35 alchemy:~/tbld/trinity/kdelibs> ls -1

 From ${srcdir}, cmake is called by:

cmake ../

This fails with makechrootpkg because nothing gets copied to the chroot. Is 
there a way to fix this?
