You're doing this incorrectly.
Setup a repo that is reachable in the chroot

( sudo /usr/sbin/mkarchroot -u  ${_chroot}/root 2>&1 | tee 
${_date}build.log && exit ${PIPESTATUS} )
( sudo /usr/sbin/makechrootpkg -c -r ${_chroot} 2>&1 | tee -a 
${_date}build.log && exit ${PIPESTATUS} )

The first mkarchroot updates the chroot system and the second builds the 
package, when they are are built you are ready to install to the host 
I do not recommend installing the trinity packages to the chroot, the 
PKGBUILD file should pull them in automagically if it is written correctly.

See my automated trinity build system for pointers.  I wrap the whole 
thing in a Makefile which builds the entire trinity desktop ( if needed ).
$ make trinity is all that is then needed.
