One thing you could also try locally is to install the devtools package
and then run the `extra-x86_64-build` command in the folder containing
the PKGBUILD file. This will create a clean chroot under /var and will
build the package exactly they way we build most packages in the
official repos. One thing to remember is that this way is much more
taxing in computing resources, specifically disk space and time. But it
is safer as your system is separated from the build environment.
